Google Chrome delayed cursor and not able to select text well (solved)

I noticed within the last week, google-chrome 24.0.1312.56-1 (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/google-chrome/) from AUR, isn't able to select text at all or very well (unless I use alt-a) and the cursor isn't updating very quickly when I mouse over links or text. Sometimes it gets stuck with the finger point when not over a link. Another example, when I hit Submit for this post the text editing I beam was the cursor was shown over the button. The problem doesn't seem to happen at all with proprietary NVIDIA drivers but does occur when using nouveau or VirtualBox video drivers. Also, the problem appears to be Chrome specific from what I can tell.

I tried restoring all settings to default and disabling all accelerations and uninstalling extensions but it still persists. Any other suggestions or flags I can change?

Running 64-bit, other package info:
* linux-ck 3.7.4-1
* libgl 9.0.2-1
* nouveau-dri 9.0.2-1
* xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.6-1
* virtualbox-ck-guest-modules 4.2.6-5


Thanks in advance for any help,

Re: Google Chrome delayed cursor and not able to select text well (solved)

EDIT: GL errors posted earlier not related, nouveau doesn't have them.

Problem also exists with Chromium and dev Google-Chrome version.

SOLVED:
Had turned off tooltips in gtkrc file, commenting it out and it is fixed.
