It happens often that my cursor on
gnome-terminal disappears, forcing me to work on a new tab/window. It seems like a random occurrence. Does anyone else experience this? What about other X terminal emulators? How can I fix this (or maybe it's just a bug)?
update: A simple work-around is to switch away from the terminal and switch back.
update 2: I don't experience this any more, maybe because I'm using GNOME 3 version of the terminal.
