SDL vs unclutter: mouse getting centered in windowed mode

Hi there,

I’m facing a strange mouse issue with some SDL games (blobwars 0.91,
starfighter 1.1 , lost labyrinth 0.9.4) when unclutter is running (unclutter
-idle 2). The mouse gets centered after 2 seconds of motion, but only in
fullscreen mode.

I wonder if anyone here could explain why some games are not affected by
unclutter and why the games are affected in fullscreen only. And last, if this
is an expected issue when using an SDL app while unclutter is running…
Any hint?


Typo in the subject, please read “in fullscreen mode”. The mail body is still
OK. Sorry for the inconvenience!
