What about a patch that turns the cursor off after X seconds of inactivity,
like how all media players (mplayer, windows media, powerdvd, etc) work

Mouse cursor, right?  Turning it off was intentional.  It's done that
way to the cursor doesn't distract the video viewing or anything else --
afterall, many (most?) of us are using myth only on our tv's and with a
remote.

But turning it back on when mythfrontend exits *would* be very nice..
not having it that way is causing me to run a completely separate X
session for other apps.  Which isn't *that* much of a problem, because I
like running at a high-res then anyway.
