Sounds great.

Because I am able to run 20.6 at the moment, this isn't causing me
grief, but I thought I'd llet you know that I tried the workaround and
it didn't seem to do anything on Solaris8/TWM.

I've placed an xterm over the emacs window.  When I move the mouse back
and forth, the xterm cursor reacts normally, but the emacs cursor
remains outline.  I don't know if it means anything that it's responding
differently than the Linux system.
