Cursor image is distorted when recording with Xfixes
Distribution: Kubuntu edgy, 64bit
Package: xserver-xorg, Version: 1:7.1.1ubuntu6.2
Package: xserver-xorg-core, Version: 1:1.1.1-0ubuntu12.1
Logged In: YES
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.
