Vino doesn't show remote mouse pointers correctly

Bug Description

Binary package hint: vino

I am using vino (2.32.0-0ubuntu1.1) on ubuntu 10.10, to remote-control several other ubuntu 10.10 machines.

The mouse pointer is always displayed as a default arrow. For example, when reaching window borders, no resize-pointer appears, when hovering over text input fields, no text cursor appears, etc.

This makes it especially difficult to remotely resize windows.

If it helps... Although I have not used Ubuntu much, Vino has always had this problem for me and a coworker for years running various versions of Debian, Gnome and Remote Desktop. It appears to be entirely independent of what client one uses. I have never seen it NOT do this. I post here because I very much hope someone can fix this. Thank you

Common guys, it has been years. It's really annoying and hard to resize the application window in a VNC session.
