When I take a screenshot, it looks like this:

As you can see, I actually have two mouse cursors + the remainder of a drag-and-drop action on my monitor, but the software thinks it's not there. How can I get back to the "normal" state without logging out?

I have MATE 1.8.2 / Ubuntu 14.10.

  • What do you mean by 'without logging out'? That just only happen to some random sessions? If yes, then I think that might be a bug. Not related to your question, but are you using bash? Can I have your PS1 pls! – McSinyx Jul 23 '15 at 13:16
  • With "without logging out" I mean that I can fix it when I restart the computer. It happens quite rarely and I am very sure it is a bug. However, I didn't find a bug report... Not related: I use ZSH + OhMyZSH. I like the git indicator very much :-) – Martin Thoma Jul 23 '15 at 13:22
