Disabling mouse over highlighting


From: Jay Rogers
Subject: Disabling mouse over highlighting
Date: 08 Feb 2002 17:52:24 -0500

Many users who don't use the mouse while in emacs find the "mouse
over hightlighting" to be annoying.

There should be a way for a user to disable the highlight and/or
the pointer shape change.

Below is a message posted to gnu.emacs.bug back in Aug 1997
requesting the same and providing code to do so for v19.34.

Please consider implementing this for the next version of emacs.
