It's a FAQ, triggered by the resolution change or a focus change when using the Nvidia driver.

Some find installing declutter and restarting X fixes it, I had to disable the hardware cursor in xorg.conf as well, haven't seen an unwanted  cursor since.

Of course checking that hide mouse cursor is set in MythTV too.
