The mouse pointer in my Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS VM (running in VMware Fusion) has changed into a little hand holding a document. It doesn't show up in screen-shots.
All mouse clicks (left or right) are ignored. But I can still type in the one Terminal window I have open. (And commands work fine.)
I wonder if I'm in some kind of drag-and-drop mode.
How do I get out of this?
Update: Rebooting (from the command-line) worked. Ubuntu came up with the regular mouse-pointer.
