    mouse hotspot still incorrect in RC1 (when using MS Paint Pencil Tool, for example)

    I am running RC1, with the RC1 tools installed (including the parallels mouse driver).

    On my machine *some* mouse cursors do not seem to have the hot spot set correctly. For instance run MSPAINT.EXE and draw freehand with the pencil tool. The hotspot is not the tip of the pencil, but somewhere in midair off to the side nearer to the eraser. Other cursors, such as the crosshair, seem to have the hotspot in the right place.

    Uninstalling the parallels mouse driver and using the default emulation makes the problem go away, but then you don't get the benefits of the driver. This is probably the most disabling bug for me in Parallels at this moment, because I am using Windows exclusively for drawing programs, so precise mouse positioning is important.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    I have the same problem in Sketchup.

    This also happens in VS.Net when selecting a line using the margin on the left in a text window.

    I've seen this problem with Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook. Andrew from Parallels did say in an earlier post that this problem has been addressed and will be included in the next release.
