Default Cursor won't move off screen 1

Greetings-

Summary: After today's apt-get dist-upgrade, my mouse cursor won't move
back from the right screen (screen 1) to screen 0.


Detail: this is debian testing, kernel 2.6.24, using the radeon drivers
for a two-headed setup. Login and the original cursor are on screen 0.
After moving the cursor to screen 1, it will no longer move back to
screen 0; pushing it to the left of screen 1 just leaves it at the left
there.


This worked fine as of last week using the same xorg.conf, pasted below
for reference.


Window manager: metacity
Environment: Gnome 2.22.3
xorg.conf:

# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool,
using

# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades
*only*

# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically
updated

# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
