  Mouse cursor should be hidden before desktop fades to screensaver

Bug description:
  This may not be classified properly as a bug, but it's subjective.

  At present, the desktop fades to black, then the screensaver comes on.
  But during that fade, the mouse cursor is still visible onscreen --
  creating a white distraction as the screen is fading.

  It shouldn't be difficult to hide the cursor at the beginning of the
  fade, therefore giving the impression that the desktop is very
  smoothly transitioning to the screensaver.

  I'm not sure if the behaviour is specific to the rss-glx screensaver
  package, or if it's more general to GNOME's treatment of screensavers

  Ubuntu Release: 8.04
  rss-glx: 0.8.1-8ubuntu4 0
  gnome-screensaver: 2.22.2-0ubuntu1 0
