In the connection options dialog, I've selected both "Let remote server
deal with cursor" and "Track remote cursor locally" and they both give
the same result. I had assumed that the second option was TightVNC's
"local cursor handling," but perhaps it isn't. That was why I said I
suspect the problem is the the VNC protocol. I'll test with RealVNC on
Monday when I'm back at work.
Thanks for the quick response!
