I have a problem with my cursor. Especially when taking screenshots the cursor and the coordinates (numbers) flicker pretty much. I can't see the numbers when I drag the cursor. That error wasn't before I updated to Mountain Lion. I hopeed it will be fixed in 10.8.1 but I just installed the OS X update and it is bad as before.

Is this a known bug? Maybe an issue with a special app?

(Using: iMac mid 2011 i7 8GB RAM 250GB SSD)

Are you using a Magic Trackpad or a mouse? If mouse, which mouse? – duci9y Sep 3 '12 at 13:13
There are a Logitech MX mouse, an Apple wireless keyboard and a Magic Trackpad connected. – suntrop Sep 3 '12 at 15:57
So which one are you using, the mouse or the trackpad? – duci9y Sep 3 '12 at 16:29
The cursor flickers, regardless what device I am using. – suntrop Sep 3 '12 at 17:14
Do one thing. First remove the mouse and see if the trackpad is causing the problem. Then vice versa. Report back. – duci9y Sep 4 '12 at 13:20
