Snapshot includes cursor?

It's not working that way here on OSX 10.8.5 with LC 6.6.1, sometimes I wish I could capture the cursor, so I can understand it being frustrating if it appears when not required.

You could try hiding the cursor instead of moving it…

	set the cursor to none -- Hides the cursor
	import snapshot from rect tRect
	set the cursor to arrow -- Restores the cursor

I’m getting really frustrated with the snapshot oddities. I did a workaround by moving the cursor out of the capture rectangle, then moving it back after the capture. I had to use the wait command to get it to work. I tried this with LC 6.7 dp4 and it has the same behavior.
