X cursor, NVidia drivers


I've been using Phoebe on my laptop for a couple of days now. I'm still
fighting with GNOME in order to get things to my liking (the bugs I've
found have already been reported), but I have more important problems to
take care of.

The first one is probably totally stupid : Why is my cursor red? It hasn't
always been, I've even had it change from white to red and back during the
same session... is X doing that for some reason?

The second is with those good old binary-thus-not-supported NVidia drivers,
as my X server crashes if ever I try to launch it with the glx extension
enabled. Right now it's running fine with my same XF86Config I had with Red
Hat Linux 7.3's X but without glx, thus any kind of OpenGL acceleration. I
wouldn't mind using the free "nv" driver, but it still doesn't seem to
support GeForce 2 Go cards, so even for 2D I'm stuck :-(

Now to a more general question : When I switch workspaces, it's slow like
hell to redraw all open windows, even with say one terminal per workspace.
Although it would be strange, could it be a combination of the new XFree86
and not having glx enabled? (with all that obscure NVidia stuff, nothing
much surprises me anymore!)
