Ohhhh, now I get what you mean... We actually have a bug report like that:

I guess your issue and #492 [1] boil down to the same reason.

The problem is that NX in windowed desktop session mode does not  
handle it well, when the mouse pointer leaves the window / crosses the  
NX desktop window border.

Can you please do one thing for me? -> Launch a KDE session in Xephyr,  
using the same user profile. How does Xephyr handle it when the mouse  
pointer is moved to the bottom border of the windowed X11/Xephyr
