Thanks Andrew. I was able to use the instructions on that linked page to fix 
the screen resolution as desired. Much appreciated.

I'm not currently familiar enough with the inner workings or code underlying 
Qubes Agents to take a casual shot at customising them, but it's good to know 
for future reference what would need to be tweaked in order to modify mouse 
pointer behavior. For now I'll just live with the dual pointers in standard 
Linux HVM's.

Generally speaking, is it the case that running apps directly from a TemplateVM 
(whether it's Debian, Fedora, Arch, Ubuntu) is functionally equivalent and 
identical to operating that template/distro as a self-contained standalone HVM? 
Meaning if I wanted a Debian HVM, it's just as easy to clone my Debian 
TemplateVM and treat it as an HVM, instead of creating an actual new HVM the 
classic way and then installing a Debian ISO?

Is there any fundamental intrinsic difference between how a Template behaves if 
used in this fashion, and how a normal HVM would behave?
