Forwarding this bug from Ubuntu reporter Jonathan Voss:

Mouse cursor corruption when switching users with an older ATI card

[Original Description]
I'm guessing the box is 64x64 pixels. It's got horizontal lines across it. The
mouse pointer looks completely normal in screenshots, so I am including a
picture taken with my phone.

It looked messed up in the same way on the other account, and continues to look
messed up now that I have switched back. It still functions normally, but it's
a little hard to know where you're clicking since the actual pointer seems to
be a bit away from the upper left corner of this box.

I've just reproduced it twice tonight. It seems to happen randomly when
switching to other accounts or to the login screen. I can't get it to happen
consistently however so it's hard to tell what's causing it. Since my last
reboot, I've switched through a bunch of accounts, gnome3, unity, and unity 2d,
without getting the mouse corruption.

By the way, I use a program called redshift, which causes a reddish hue at
night, as can be seen in the picture. Redshift does not appear to affect the
mouse pointer though. It may also cause this bug I guess.
