  Having upgraded my main operating system to Windows Server 2008 and my
GeForce 7025 display drivers to their latest version, I can now rule out
that this rendering bug in Opera was caused by Windows Server 2003 or my
old display drivers, so capturing that seemed like a good opportunity to
test out "WebM" support in my toolchains. Seems to work okay, video with
the smears is attached. There is unfortunately little point in reporting
the problem to Opera, if one googles for 'opera mouse cursor disappears'
one should find they don't care much about bugs that make browsing quite
difficult (usually with individual CNet articles you can't read any text
due to the smears from some toolbar or whatever; happens many places).

I wonder which MIME Type should be used for "WebM", there does not seem
to be any type registered... application/octet-stream it is, then. Next
up: tell IANA the logo on the media type registry is broken and has the
wrong alt text, maybe they care about fixing bugs.
