Who’s Stolen my Cursor?

I started to notice yesterday that when on Google Chrome after a couple of second of inactivity the cursor would disappear. A quick search shows that people have been reporting this issue as far back as 2009.

Further investigation seems to show that the issue is caused by having certain websites open (including this one). Others have suggested that the culprit is the Flash plug-in, although I am not convinced of that.

Has anyone else had this issue? Do you see the problem when Spoken Like a Geek is open? I would be interested to know so leave us a comment.
