Blocky cursor on Linux Fedora in Mathematica 9.0.1

GROUPS:
hi, I have M installed since ages - currently on 9.0.1.0 under Linux Fedora 19 (KDE).
Everything was running smoothly as usual, until today when I setup a 2nd monitor.
Now in Mathematica whenever the cursor is in a notebook, it changes to a big gray square - I realize that it is possibly a OS-related question, but M is the only application having this problem, so I thought to ask you, maybe somebody else encountered this problem before...
thank you!

You might try a clean start:

    mathematica -cleanstart

or using the mesa driver:

    mathematica -mesa

a late reply due to christmas holdays!

Thank you for the suggestions but no, neither did the trick - the hideous blocky cursor is always there...

So my next thought would be to check the video card / driver. Are you using an nvidia driver? If so, are you using the 319 driver? I've seen a number of issues with the 304 nvidia driver and have found that they are mostly fixed in the 319 driver.
