interesting: I'm left handed, but never felt the need to adjust the
mouse cursor accordingly.  Obviously I'm more interested in the actual
location of the tip of my mouse cursor than the direction from which
it is coming from (left or right).

But what to do want to bet that after this thread I'm going to notice
my mismatched mouse cursor everytime I look at it from now on :)
