I just set up VMWare Fusion with FreeBSD and have a problem that
might be related. Ascii art time:
The pointer appears normally on the screen. However, clicking around
the screen does not work except in a small area in the top left
corner. Moving the mouse within this tiny corner seems to scale up
and operate on the entire screen. Eg. if I click and drag across the
tiny corner, I can see the selection appear across the entire desktop.
Is this similar to your issue? Did you find a resolution?
