Version: 25.1

I've read this paragraph in (info "(emacs) Display Custom"):

      If the mouse pointer lies inside an Emacs frame, Emacs makes it
   invisible each time you type a character to insert text, to prevent it
   from obscuring the text.  (To be precise, the hiding occurs when you
   type a "self-inserting" character.  *Note Inserting Text::.)  Moving
   the mouse pointer makes it visible again.  To disable this feature, set
   the variable `make-pointer-invisible' to `nil'.

When I try to test that feature, the mouse pointer never hides.  It
only changes between the arrow (when the pointer is over an empty
area) and the "I-beam" (when the pointer is over some text).

I've tested this with Emacs -Q, with the current trunk, with the
current emacs-24 branch, and with the 24.2, 24.1 and 23.4 releases.
In all cases the behavior is the same (mouse pointer remains visible
after typing text).

In GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt6.1.7601)
  of 2012-11-18 on MS-W7-DANI

This should work with Emacs 25.1.  Bug closed.

Thanks, martin
