    A bizarre thing: when I wake my Cube from sleep, the mouse pointer seems to have converted itself into a black 1" square. As soon as I click in a program it changes back to an arrow. Anybody else seen this?

    Is the square filled in or hollow? Could you have enabled VoiceOver in the Universal Access pane of System Preferences (COMMAND-F5 toggle) by accident? Maybe post a screenshot. :)

    Wow, that's weird. I've never seen it before but reinstalling the latest combo update from Apple and/or running the periodical maintenance scripts may help... Out of interest, does it happen in new user accounts? :)
