Fails for me when I turn off blink-cursor-mode.  However, the 
the mouse pointer does change when I have blink-cursor-mode set to
t (i.e., the cursor blinks).

I am running a Debian woody GNU/Linux system, updated a few minutes
ago, 2002 Jul 16 16:04 UTC; 

using today's CVS snapshot of 2002 Jul 16 15:53 UTC, 
GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit).

First, on starting Emacs with no blinking cursor with the command:

    emacs -q --no-site-file --eval '(blink-cursor-mode 0)'

I did M-: (sleep-for 10) RET and continued to see my mouse pointer as
is; no change.

Second, on starting Emacs with the command:

    emacs -q --no-site-file

which produces a blinking cursor.  (I hate that blinking cursor.  Why
do people want to punish themselves so?)  When evaluating (sleep-for
10), the mouse pointer changed to something which looks like a watch.
