Xpra: Ticket #2107: Huge cursor with screen sharing

Client is most recent trunk that I've compiled (I made a patch to get sharing working). The server is recent trunk that I've compiled.

The placement of the cursor is perfect. That said, the cursor icon is many times larger on the computer that is not moving the cursor. The picture attached is a screen grab on my laptop when I'm moving the cursor on my desktop.

Where should I look for debugging info?

This might be relevant: (insofar as there is no DPI setting)

[nathan@curry ~]$ xrdb -query
XTerm*background:       black
XTerm*cursorColor:      red
XTerm*faceName: Liberation Mono
XTerm*faceSize: 14
XTerm*foreground:       white

I am running xpra's dummy_drv.so

Can you attach the -d cursor log? And also the output of ./xpra/platform/gui.py for both clients (on mswindows, the tool is called NativeGUI_info.exe)

When multiple clients are connected, we skip applying some settings and leave them on defaults...

I've got this on my to do list. I'm scheduled up until Monday when I will work on this.

Bump. Unless the fix is trivial, this will be re-scheduled for the next milestone.

I hit this bug, started capturing some data and then it went away!?

What I had found so far is that you need to have desktop-scaling enabled, or set the client property XPRA_USE_LOCAL_CURSORS=0. (I was not using sharing at all)
