There are a variety of ways, one way
is to create a Cursor with nothing in it.

Another alternative that might work is using
XCreateWindow() and setting the member cursor
in the create window attributes structure to None.

I tried the second method already, but no joy.
I did think of the first method, but thought that XWindows might still be doing some extra processing ''trying'' to display a blank cursor.
I presumed there would be some command to turn it off like windows. I will go for the blank cursor approach then unless someone has another idea. Cheers.
