I have to wait ages for the magnified cursor to appear in Ubuntu 8.04. It is almost as if it is going to fail. I had to reboot at first until I noticed that it would eventually appear. I don't have desktop effects enabled. I am running the new Nvidia driver.

That's a bug in Ubuntu's version of gnome-mag. I gave up hope for an update to fix ir. Maybe in Ubuntu 8.10.

It's highly irritating. You boot Ubuntu and it's like you have to wait 2 boot times, because Orca with magnifier enabled will take up to 50 seconds before it is usable.
