Suppressing the initial cursor is more or less expected. We added a
patch for that to make the transition from plymouth to gdm prettier, in
which the server doesn't show a cursor until an application defines one.
However, there was a logic error in the patch which made it actually
suppress the cursor until the third or fourth time you defined one.
Heh, well, many who know me will tell you that I'm often guilty of logic
I could have sworn I'd fixed that in F10 as well as in upstream, but it
appears not. I'll push an F10 update.
It's rather trivial as I've mentioned. I see now that another rawhide
install had had the same issue, but I'd never noticed it because
usually, after opening fluxbox or openbox, I immediately open either a
terminal or browser and have keyboard shortcuts to do it.
Thanks very much for the response and your efforts. Let me know when
you've pushed the update and I'll test it.
