If you use xv (graphics/xv), install it, launch it, right click on the
splash screen, there is a "Grab" button which when pressed can be
configured to grab a window after a set time but unfortunately it
doesn't grab the cursor.
I guess you could always Gimp it in by grabbing pngs/gifs of the
various cursors off the 'net.
xv is quite a useful program for graphics that is worth installing.
Imagemagik for batch processing, Gimp for drawing things from scratch
and fancy effects, xv for quick "point & drool" transformations.
