On both Debian/Lenny and Ubuntu/Intrepid, it apparently offsets the
perceived location of the mouse pointer (glyph location versus pointer
physical location) by one vertical GNOME menu row and it makes the X
server crash at random after just a few minutes. However, the garbage
around the pointer is indeed gone in both cases.
