Xpra: Ticket #256: usability: please forward more cursors

0.8.2: there are many applications where in-window frames can be resized by dragging border. In none of those apps I see mouse cursor turning its shape when hovering over border.

It would be nice if mouse cursor would change its shape within Xpra session so users could see where they can start dragging rather than guessing the sensitive area without visual feedback.

Can you give examples? (application + location) We already forward the cursor changes, if the shape does not change then it means that the application has not requested it... for whatever reason.

iceweasel/tree-style-tab (width of tabs area) geany (documents/main editing area) kate (documents/main editing area) reportbug-ng (border between list and body of bug report) gwenview (browse mode, border between folders tree and main window)

Hah, I think this got broke in 0.8.2, does r2707 fix it?

No, it didn't help unfortunately...

Hah, well, that's because I was getting really tired (that will be my excuse for today, beats incompetence): r2708 + r2709

Now fixed, thanks very much.

Actually tiredness (lack of sleep) and incompetence that's my area. Especially latter as even with enough sleep I wouldn't be able to fix it. ;)
