It would be extremly nice if rxvt would blank the mouse
course at keypress while typing.
dtterm from CDe does that and its extremly nice since
once one starts to type the mouse ointer goes
automaticaly out of the way

    How long does it disappear for?
    Is it settable via command line or resource?

    Now available in CVS version (and next release) via
    configure --enable-pointer-hiding . Currently hardcoded to
    half second extra after keypress.

    Note, this works differently to the dtterm version - in that
    the pointer will reappear automatically after half a second
    as opposed to having the pointer reappear when the mouse is
    moved.

    It now should work the same as described in the dtterm
    manual page. Requires --enable-pointer-blank for configure.
    Resources pointerBlank (boolean) and pointerBlankDelay (int)
