Fails for me when I turn off blink-cursor-mode. However, the
the mouse pointer does change when I have blink-cursor-mode set to
t (i.e., the cursor blinks).
I am running a Debian woody GNU/Linux system, updated a few minutes
ago, 2002 Jul 16 16:04 UTC;
using today's CVS snapshot of 2002 Jul 16 15:53 UTC,
GNU Emacs 188.8.131.52 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit).
First, on starting Emacs with no blinking cursor with the command:
emacs -q --no-site-file --eval '(blink-cursor-mode 0)'
I did M-: (sleep-for 10) RET and continued to see my mouse pointer as
is; no change.
Second, on starting Emacs with the command:
emacs -q --no-site-file
which produces a blinking cursor. (I hate that blinking cursor. Why
do people want to punish themselves so?) When evaluating (sleep-for
10), the mouse pointer changed to something which looks like a watch.
