I've the latest version of my bios and the most important amount of FrameBuffer allocated to the GPU.

I mail this message to linux-bug@nvidia.com (some new information) :
Code:
Description of the Bug :

in normal use of metacity :
With HWCURSOR => no visible cursor
With SWCURSOR => cursor OK

when I run compiz :
With HWCURSOR => no visible cursor
With SWCURSOR => cursor visible bug with some graphics bug

My solution, a really boring solution :

1. run metacity with swcursor.
2. change xorg.conf file to hwcursor.
3. run gdm-restart.

Magicaly i can get a visible cursor with hwcursor's mode and with compiz it's ok too.

but when I restart my computer in hwcursor .... problem be back and i can't see my cursor.
