Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

Gnome-screenshot only shows one pointer, even if there is multiple pointers via MPX.
To reproduce:
0. Get MPX working. (You'll need Lucid, and extra mouse and keyboard, and this tutorial->https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/MPX. )
1. Take a screenshot with both pointers in easy-to-see places.
2. Look at screenshot and only find one pointer.

I would expect to see both pointers if 'Include pointer' was checked.
If you need more information, just ask.
Thanks!
