Olivier,

I believe the only way to achieve this is to hack and recompile the
source.

In the source file "cursor.c" there is a function "CheckForEmptyMask"
within this function if you set "bits->emptyMask = TRUE" the cursor
won't appear.

Caveat: I did this myself, but it's couple of years ago now. Maybe
someone on this line has a more up-to-date method.
