    Bug closed in current CVS.

    Reason was that Xfixes returns the cursor as a
    list of unsigned long, which is non portable in size.
    recordMyDesktop reads the image as a single byte sequence,
    previously under the presumption that pixels are 32bit in size.

    In the case of amd64, where sizeof long is 8 bytes, the pixels
    come at 64 bit each. So the program kept reading 4 useless
    bytes after every pixel. Thus the pixelated
    and enlarged cursor.

    A release will follow within the next few days,
    that will handle the cursor correctly.
