a problem with Compiz-Fusion in Gutsy

I feel your pain... I'm running without Compiz because of a bug in the
nVidia driver that prevents me from having the cursor rendered in
hardware (the HWCursor option in Xorg.conf) because if I leave HWCursor
on, which is required to run Compiz without glitching, the cursor will
randomly disappear.
