when I start i3 wm, or close the last tile on a workspace, the mouse cursor remains in a 'waiting' state. how to avoid this? (ubuntu 12.04)
This is due to startup notifications which are still running for some application. After 1 minute, the startup notification will time out.
To avoid this, use applications which support startup-notification (basically everything which is GTK/Qt, but also urxvt, …). If your application does not support it, start it using exec --no-startup-id, for example:
bindsym $mod+x exec --no-startup-id xterm
Note that this is not the default because you lose some functionality without startup notifications:
