Question mouse cursor remains in other screen edge

I have a problem with my mouse cursor after installing the linux driver. I have looked for a similar problem on this forum, but have not been able to find anyone who seems to have the same problem.

My problem is that when I move the mouse cursor between one screen and the other (I have two displays) the mouse cursor leaves an image of the cursor at the edge of the screen where it left the screen, as the cursor appears in the other screen. The problem occurs going both directions. When the screensaver (xscreensaver) starts, the frozen mouse cursor is not erased by the screensaver.

I am running kubuntu 9.04 with KDE 3.5.10 on an amd64-bit system and the driver I have loaded is NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-185.18.36-pkg2. My kernel is 2.6.28-15-generic #52-Ubuntu SMP and the video card is based on a GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS. Has anyone else had this problem? Or can anyone help me solve this problem?

Thank you in advance,
