I presume this doesn't happen with Compiz disabled?

Interestingly, #9828 seems to be the same in reverse.

The bug is not in reverse -- it is the same bug... Basically Bug #9828 says that mouse becomes invisible when moved on top 3D accelerated surface. My tests prove this is the case.

Steps: Enabled 3D acceleration and start "glxgears". (RHEL 6 guest)

If mouse integration is ON = mouse is visible. (OK)

If mouse integration is OFF = mouse is invisible. (BUG !! - happens when moving on top of 3D surface)
