Cursor position is slightly off in F36 KDE virtual machines


If you run Fedora 36 KDE in a virtual machine in virt-manager, you might see that the mouse cursor is not perfectly synchronized between the host and the guest. The mouse cursor position might be slightly shifted from where you see the actual cursor, and so you might have problems hitting small buttons or other precise widgets.
