Setting SDL_VIDEO_X11_DGAMOUSE=0 environment variable works around this

  Cursor jumps on shape change with vmware vga

Status in QEMU:

Bug description:
  I launch QEMU with the following command line:

  qemu-system-i386 /home/ruslan/iso/Windoze/qemuxp.img -m 512 -display
  sdl -vga vmware -enable-kvm

  The guest OS is Windows XP. To reproduce the problem, do this:

  0. Make sure guest is WinXP (don't know if it's really necessary), use vmware 
  1. Set mouse cursor theme to default black&white theme, i.e. that without any 
translucency etc.
  2. Open a text editor, e.g. built-in notepad
  3. Move the cursor inside text entry widget
  4. See the cursor jumping away. You basically can't enter the cursor there.

  This also reproduces with MS Word 2003 even with oxy-white cursor
  theme (i.e. that with translucency) — seems Word uses its plain
  black&transparent cursor for I-beam cursor.

  This doesn't happen with other VGAs, i.e. cirrus and std.

  I used qemu git master to test this. qemu-system-i386 --version
  reports version 2.0.90, git describe says v2.1.0-rc0-1-g9d9de25. This
  also happened in earlier QEMU versions, like 1.5.x and older.
