This issues appeared with Ubuntu 9.04 ; wasn't occuring with 8.10 and
earlier. Not to sure what happened.

As soon as you change the refresh rate, the mouse cursor suddenly appears.

So work around I use is move the cursor to the bottom right corner
before starting myth with:
/usr/bin/xwit -root -warp 1920 1080

1920x1080 is the dimension of my screen
