Shouldn't a simple X/displaymanager restart do it? Hit 
Ctrl+Alt+Backspace for the former or run /etc/init.d/{g,k,w,x}dm restart 
for the latter as root.

Indeed, it releases the mouse, but the resolution is still stuck at what 
ut2k4 it set to, 1024x768 here. Ctrl Alt +/- doesnt work and xrandr -s 0 
fails [1], also changing the SDL_SetVideoMode call in umouse.c to
(1280, 1024, 24, 0); which is my usual resolution doesn't do it.

So I still prefer a quick start of quake3 to solves that problem after 
being forced to kill-9 ut2k4, and of course Meta+T is bound to start a 
new aterm.


[1] fails with: $ xrandr -s 0
X Error of failed request:  BadImplementation (server does not implement 
   Major opcode of failed request:  157 (RANDR)
