I looked at the code again, and now I think I know what you are after.

Yes, we all agree in that point. But after re-reading your explanation
and the code I think you might be trying to fix the symptom but not the
problem. Wouldn't it be better to have the X11 VOs not interfere with
cursor management if an external WinID is used? In that case you would
would be in control of it remaining invisible and responsible for making

I guess this is the reason you don't want to get into full control of
the cursor visibility.
In case you want to keep this functionality, which depends on internal
VO state, then I would expect it to be better to make it just work out
without your interference. Maybe by doing the opposite change and letting
the VO code make it invisible.

Thanks for implementing it quickly, but stuffing this into a separate
commit would be much preferable. It could also get committed before your
show/hide cursor patch. But choose the order as you see fit in your work
