I used the built in cursors too. It was a simple test program, with
xforms 0.86 under Linux 2.0.29 (Xfree86 v 3.3) on my 486 DLC, and on an
Ultra Enterprise 4000 with Sun OS 5.5.1.
My program called the fl_set_cursor() function, and caught the warning
message, after setting the no.64 built in cursor.Here is the source :

static int my_curs=0;
switch (event) {
case FL_ENTER:
fprintf(stderr,"Cursor : %d\n",my_curs);
if (my_curs>150) my_curs=0;

My other problem was that when I logged in to the Sparc directly from XDM
menu : pressing the mouse button generated FL_LEAVE,FL_ENTER,FL_DOWN...
But on my own machine, and when I rlogin to the Sparc it didn't send the
FL_LEAVE and FL_ENTER. I think this is the normal operation, isn't it?

Wow ! Where could I find the 0.87.2 ? I only found 0.81 and 0.86.
