Ok. And reading my own lines above, I realize F13 worked for me earlier,

I'll have to re-test things here aswell :)
For F13 and RHEL6 you'll probably need the connected-state patches I posted a little while ago for F13 reliably though -- http://markmail.org/message/jtkqbgs5xw7vqvst
-- they were committed to qemu-xen-unstable recently. There was a different patch earlier that caused trouble which this patch fixed.
CentOS 5.5 (and RHEL5.5) deliberately turns off request-abs-pointer in favour of relative pointers.
The excuse given is that the RHEL5 X server isn't up to the job of dealing with absolute pointers. The claim is that you get better responsiveness with relative pointers and a gtk-vnc-based viewers.
Having said that I fix the evdev driver, the various X configuration utilities and anaconda to get absolute pointers working in CentOS/RHEL5.4.
I haven't tried the same set of patches with 5.5 but I think a different approach is needed, one that doesn't need to touch quite so much of the Red Hat base.
