Known issue. Use the option off the context menu of the X icon in your
status bar to show the cursor again. That's the current work-around.
Okay, thanks, worked. Do you have some background information why this
happens and when? Because I have the feeling that sometime it happens
after a few minutes and sometimes after hours or not at all.
No, I don't. You can check the email archives for more, though I don't
recall if there was more in the way of specific details or not. It is
definitely a random occurrence. I don't see it very much myself but I
do use the Xming server more regularly than the Cygwin version.
