Only record a click, for example and wait xnee to stop recording, ok

Yes, but it was an example (now I recorded in :0 display)

Ok, I would try to explain my first example with more detail:

I want use cnee for:

- clicking in an bookmark inside your favourite browser and open a web
site which it is slowly loaded (aka 10 seconds)
- After that 10 seconds, I would like to take a snapshot (corfirming
that website was correctly displayed)

I'm doing this testing first using Xephyr, but later I will move to
Xvfb (so It will be fully transparent for me)

Then I try to use cnee with --seconds-to-record 10 parameter, save my
click and wait for my page is loaded.

When I want to replay this secuence and taking a screenshot with any
tool (import in this case) i try to use cnee --replay ... but it won't
be running 10 seconds (it run only until my click is replayed, but not
the time waiting for the page load (in my example only 7 seconds (5+2)

I now I can use sleep after cnee, but I think could be a good idea
having --even-no-event switch that would force to cnee to replay your
session with the same duration that the original.

I hope I explained this a bit better now

I'm using cnee to automatice some rutinary tasks so this is non an
option in this case.

Using sleeps would be a workarround but I think could be cool to have
this behaviour without sleep hack (I should account how long cnee
runed, and make maths to get the number of seconds to sleep).

Thank you very much, and sorry for my very bad englis
