cursor visibility problem

In Alexandre's new windowing architecture, we have in
dlls/x11drv/window.c, line 119, this:

        attr->cursor = X11DRV_GetCursor( display, GlobalLock16(GetCursor()) );

Problem: what if ShowCursor(FALSE) is called to hide the cursor *before*
the window was created? Yup, GetCursor still returns the current (arrow)
cursor, so the new window gets associated with a visible cursor, though
the app would expect the cursor to remain hidden.

Diablo II is currently known to suffer from this problem... it has too
many cursors visible.

I haven't come up with a very clean solution to this... ideas?
