Until recently, Apple Remote Desktop showed the local mouse cursor on top of controlled remote workstations (apparently in an effort to compensate for network latency).

A few days ago, my installation of Apple Remote Desktop stopped showing the local cursor, so now all I see is the remote mouse cursor. This is frustrating because the network latency makes it much more difficult to accurately position the mouse cursor.

What might have changed? How can I convince Apple Remote Desktop to start showing the local mouse cursor again?
