Mac Movie Recording - Cursor Record Bug

Since Patch 4.2.0 (1433) the Mac Movie Recording feature is not recording the cursor properly so that when you watch the recorded video the cursor appears in the wrong location on the screen (and up-side down) from where it actually was when recorded. It looks like the cursor is being recorded as a mirror image horizontally of the actual location (point to the top of the screen shows the cursor at the bottom of the screen (and upside-down) in the movie recording..

I did a short movie recording to demonstrate the bug. I move items in my bags that are at the top of the screen, but the cursor is at the bottom of the screen. I really rely on this feature to help guild members with improving their play, and especially now that we have new bosses to defeat in Firelands.

This is a known issue. It's been updated in our 4.2 issues sticky:

Recorded movies in WoW are displaying the mouse cursor upside down.
    When you enable "Record" cursor option, the cursor will show up upside down during the playback. This also causes the cursor to be in a mirror mode, and when interacting with the UI, the cursor will be interacting on the top side of the screen. Everything else should be fine. For the moment, you can uncheck the "Record Cursor" option.
