If a program uses Microsoft Mouse Function 1 to show the mouse cursor, and if the program returns to MS-DOS after execution, the cursor image is saved every time an MS-DOS command is executed and the screen is thus scrolled.

The only workaround is to hide the mouse cursor before executing an MS-DOS command and redisplaying the cursor.
