Unfortunately it behaves "a little bit" different here.  There is a
cursor blinking when I have selected the hand tool.  When I use the
magnifier tool the cursor disappears and I get a different mouse
pointer instead.  However, independent of which tool I select, when I
switch to fullscreen mode the blinking cursor comes back.

Anybody out there who can tell me where to report this bug?

Another question: Unlike previous versions of Acroread for Linux,
Acroread-7 makes heavy use of shared libraries provided by Linux.
Is it possible that one of the libraries is misconfigured?

Can any Linux user confirm the behaviour described above?

If it's a bug in Acroread it would be a pity if it will not be fixed
in AR-8.0.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
