Remove storing cursor position in PCB files
Status in PCB: Printed Circuit Board CAD package:
Recently I get repeatedly unneccessary(?) merge/cherry-pick conflicts
with line 9 of .pcb files. This line typically reads something like
Cursor[7500 30000 6.000000] (latest release) or
Cursor[625.00mil 25.00mil 6.000000] (current git master)
Apparently, the last position of the cursor is stored here, which is
pretty much arbitrary, so it changes on every save.
Now I can't imagine how a stored cursor position might be useful for
anything. When viewing the file it's overridden as soon as the mouse
enters the viewing area. If there's no use, I'd like to remove that
entry to reduce the conflict potential.
