(I realize mice are good at hiding, but this one doesn't need to be afraid of the cat)

Using the free version of CursorFX:
As the title says, the cursor hides - for example, when I try to mouse over a Yahoo Widget (konfabulator widget), or if I have Avast! set to use translucent effects, the mouse hides behind the window, and then pulls the buttons from behind to activate them. Makes it tricky. I turned off the transparent effect in Avast! but the konfabulator widget thing is annoying.
Seems to be related to transparency in the applications windows (yes yes, Captain Obvious has spoken, I know).
I have XP SP3 on an ancient Shuttle P4 system with an AGP Radeon x1950 using ATI Catalyst driver package version 8.5 (Catalyst version 08.6).
Any known workaround to such issues? I've been working as a systems analyst for ~19 years now, so don't be shy about suggesting registry tweaks or using a cattle prod on the system or something.
Oh and by the way, why did it take so long for you wizards at Stardock to come up with Fences? I've been using less than stellar solutions for years now, Fences is absolutely the best implementation for this concept I've come across!!!
