Ok, so if you next goto ARandR (Maximize window for later steps) and click
"Outputs> DVI-1> Active" and click apply (green checkmark) the then active DVI
screen goes to sleep and the mouse cursor goes away on the VGA screen. 

If you maximized the window you can play around the top left corner or use
Alt-o to get the menu down and uncheck "Outputs> DVI-1> Active" (blindly use
the mouse, not the keyboard!) and apply, and then play around, I don't know if
it's time, or clicks or what but you CAN get the cursor to come back. 

Twice I blindly rammed it into the top left corner and clicked and it just came
back. I also tried "Alt-o> mouse over VGA-1> orientation> inverted" (the only
setting that doesn't crash X). Can't replicate the mouse re-appearing, but I
have done it more than once while typing this. I'm including the Xorg.0.log
from right now.

I hope you are able to follow this and that it helps.
