Hi Kim,

That's very nice!  However when using a bar cursor the image is
still shown in "negative".  Perhaps it would make sense to use an
hollow cursor in that case too.

Another possibility could be to just draw the bar in that case (a la
"Open Office").

To do the latter I applied the following patch to xterm.c:

Index: src/xterm.c
RCS file: /cvsroot/emacs/emacs/src/xterm.c,v
retrieving revision 1.822
diff -c -r1.822 xterm.c
*** src/xterm.c 17 Nov 2003 06:06:24 -0000      1.822

    if (cursor_glyph == NULL)
+ #if 0
    /* If on an image, draw like a normal cursor.  That's usually better
       visible than drawing a bar, esp. if the image is large so that
       the bar might not be in the window.  */
*** 7345,7350 ****
--- 7346,7352 ----
        draw_phys_cursor_glyph (w, row, DRAW_CURSOR);
+ #endif
        Display *dpy = FRAME_X_DISPLAY (f);
        Window window = FRAME_X_WINDOW (f);

I am not sure what solution is the best.
