    Yes. the cursor is stuck while it's still sending the proper info to 
the computer. If I click on something the computer does the "right" 
thing...changes videos or whatever.
But even if I shutdown Chrome the mouse cursor remains frozen, and if
I get out out of the desktop, the graphics screen of lightdm is totally 
corrupted. Then a reboot is the only way to restore things. Sounds like 
a video problem to me. I switched Chrome from its internal flash to the 
latest adobe flash but there is no change.
