Thanks to all who answered. The solution proposed were any combination of:

1) set "HWCursor" "off" in X.org configuration file, device section
2) remove the rhgb option in the kernel lines of /boot/grub.grub.conf

I tried only the second, since is the one most frequently suggested in
the archives, and it works for me too, so I haven't touched the X.org file.

Thanks again,
