Weird mouse cursor problem after installing XFCE4

I installed XFCE from source and then added the /etc/X11 files to put it
into the sessions menu, and the desktop works with no errors, but my
mouse cursor is acting funny now. When I log in for the first time on
any desktop program, it is fine, but when I log out, the cursor is
displayed in one spot, but the system thinks it is slightly up and to
the left or right. It 'moves' differently every time, and I have to move
the cursor around a button until I see it highlight because just
pressing it won't work! Sometimes it goes away when I log in, sometimes
not until I log out, and sometimes I have to restart X to get rid of it,
but it keeps messing up and is pissing me off!
I tried removing the /etc/X11 entries I made to take XFCE4 out of the
sessions menu, but that didn't do any good. The only other thing I
modified was the rpm installation for dbh-1.0. The xffm and xcalendar
packages wouldn't compile because I didn't have bdh-1.0, but I did an
rpm -qa|grep bdh and found it was installed, so I unistalled it then
reinstalled it, then the packages compiled.
For some reason, I don't know if it is related or not, my rcd red-carpet
daemon just stopped working and started crashing, so I uninstalled and
reinstalled the rpms, then started the rcd daemon with
/etc/rc.d/init.d/rcd start, and now it works again...
I hope I didn't screw something up with the XFCE4 install, but I spent
half an hour compiling the huge amounts of source code, so I don't want
to uninstall it right away until I figure out what is wrong. How should
I go about fixing this?
