I highly doubt it. The only place that could come into play (IMO) is a
poorly built kernel. The default display driver should work great,
especially in VirtualBox.
Possible issue #1, bash. try running sh or even python at the command line,
and see if the cursor works properly. How does it handle ncurses? AKA, if
you do a make menuconfig in the kernel source directory, does everything
work properly? Also, are you using any console mouse program?
Possible issue #2, some crazy program running. try booting into single user
mode (kernel argument su), and see how that works.
Hope that helps...
