I run xwit from .xinitrc right before running mythfrontend. That moves
the cursor out of the way. Here's my .xinitrc:


# Start the window manager

xwit -root -warp 1919 1199

mythfrontend -v important,general

I guess Mythbuntu starts the frontend in a different way so xinit may
not be directly involved, but there must be a way of calling xwit right
before mythfrontend runs.
