Package: blender
Version: 2.78.a+dfsg0-4
Followup-For: Bug #857494

Dear Maintainer,

I usually use blender om my 1st screen which are positioned to the left of my other two screens.
It only appears that the mousepointer disappears if blender is started on one of the two screens that are positioned to the right of the usual screen.
Not sure, but perhaps this have to do with the screen coordinates.
If the left begins at x0-1600,y0-1200 and the second begins at x1601-2881,y0-1024, third at x2882-4482 then it apperas that the mousepointer always
goes back to the first screen.
[screen1] - [screen2] - [screen3]

I usually use screen2 as the default screen with various programs running on screen1 and 3. Right now I have a power supply issue with my 1st screen
so it sometimes won't start up and other times it does. That is the reason I am using blender on other screens.
