Yeah.  Sometimes you forget the simple things.  This struck me,
though, as an unnatural thing and, therefore, not likely to be listed
as a feature in the documentation.

I've seen worse.  Especially when you're dealing with multiple OSes
and multiple versions of (X)Emacs.  The current problem that I see
with NT XEmacs 21.4 redisplay (toolbar/tabs not finishing display
until you move the mouse) probably made me think that these hollow
cursors might just be artifacts of how redisplay is done on Emacs 21
on NT.  After all, Emacs 21 is still relatively new (and I'm
relatively new to its ins and outs).
