Excerpts from Simon Schampijer's message of 2011-10-18 17:37:17 +0200:
> As stated in the ticket Metacity sets the cursor after
> it's startup, so we need to make sure Metacity is already
> running before we set the cursor. This is what the current
> code has been doing. We do show the intro screen before
> the window manager may be available. For a non invasive
> bug fix that avoids races we just call 'xsetroot -cursor_name'
> another time before the intro screen is displayed.
> We have a long history of setting the Sugar cursor with many
> races. To improve the situation SL #3204 is filed as a
> follow up.
