I have the problem of double mouse pointer every day I use lightroom.
It is enough to select images in the grid and move them to a collection, to have the mouse get a double pointer! I can get rid of it by moving the mouse over my second screen when I have one.
I'm on Lightroom 4.2 (same on 4.1)

What OS version?
What video card/GPU?

On Windows, this can be caused by a bug in the OS mouse cursor scaling -- set the OS scaling back to 100% to resolve that.

Sorry for the delay! :-/
(worries in my internet connection)

OS: Win 7
video card: integrated (Toshiba laptop): Express mobile Intel 965 ..

I don't understand what you mean by "mouse cursor scaling"?... I tried to change the model of my pointer, but it didn't affect the result in any way.

By the way, this may be related to another problem I had noticed, when I changed the size of the paintbrush, for local corrections. If I use the mouse wheel to increase/decrease the size of the paintbrush, I get sometimes something like crossed circles seen through a circular window... as I reduce the size, I get 4 cercles aligned horizontally with a '+' inside ... and when I go to the side panels, they transform into 4 aligned pointers.
