Default Cursor appearing in full screen apps?

I was running the demo of 3DMark05 last night (fun to watch, even on my machine, I love the music and credits) and I could have sworn I saw the windows cursor flash on screen a few times. What causes this to happen in full screen applications? I assume it has something to do with focus. How does one go about fixing this sort of an issue (provided it was the cursor and not sarks looking like one)?It happened frequently on my freind's windows 98 machine too.

It usually only shows up when it is moved. Mine shows up every once in a while on fuill screen appz too. Just a minor windwos flaw maybe. Or the sounds is rumbling your desk just enough to move the mouse to a point where the computer notices the movement. Nothing to worry about. Just move your mouse off to the side. All the way to the right side of the screen, bottom right corner, dissapears pretty well.
