well i am such a geek that I have multiple computers.
I have 1 mon 1 key and 1 mouse.
When i switch back and forth between x servers 
gpm gets all confused about the pointer 
(I suspect you are seeing a side effect of that same problem.

My solution...
ctrl-alt-f7  (don't move the mouse for a sec)

the first one takes you to a tty terminal
the second one takes you back into x and for some
reason gpm seems to be less confused then ..
that works for me.
