Why do you want to do this? Dope is your (secure) GUI and it should always
be able to indicate its focus and the mouse position. What does X11 with
the mouse cursor if you write an email?

Nonetheless, you could hack dope to not only "grab" the mouse, but also
"make it invisible".

To change this, the L4Linux console stub must be modified. As we only use
one stub for l4con (fixed resolution) and dope, we will not implement such
a feature. A modified stub would try to adapt to window size changes
(hopefully) propagated by dope.

Maybe there's an install package for your Linux distribution or Windows
around. For my Debian, there is :-)
