I vaguely remember talk of gpm under some circumstances causing the
mouse pointer to stick within a range of pixels at the top right under X
- a range which is the number of pixels wide that the console is
characters wide, something like that. A search on dejanews for:
gpm "top right" stuck 
brings up a posting full of things to try (this URL will probably be too
long to be clickable - copy and paste it):
