thanks -- i'll do some reading.  at the moment, i'm not sure how
this will work.  if i set a gtk timeout for 1 second, but my
program's "think" time is 10 seconds, then i won't get back to
the event loop until after that, and i've therefore blown my
intended timeout.

but i've probably just given myself away as the gtk newb that i
am, and am probably missing something really obvious, so i'll go
do some reading, like i said.

(i'm actually kind of surprised there's no gdk_window_set_cursor_after_delay()
call, for just this purpose. :-)
