Sorry Tony, you are correct.  I was using krdc to make a VNC
connection and there is an option in the drop-down options list
labeled "Always Show Local Cursor".  When I turn that on, I see the
arrow-pointer and a dot-pointer, actually it's more of a "black box
with a white/clear circle in the middle"-pointer.  The dot-pointer is
never slow but the arrow-pointer is often times slow.

I do not see the same option when using krdc to make a RDP connection.

Brad.
