I have noticed it in 0.22 as well, but in my case I am not switching 
resolutions.  The cursor appears when I use the internal player in 
mythvideo.  I haven't seen it appear after watching recordings.  I too 
am running Gentoo, could it be specific to this distribution.  I don't 
have the version details handy, but the machine was completely up to 
date as of 7/11/2010.
