 Fab, yes this gets very close to working cursors for me (sugar-jhbuild
 under F10, under VirtualBox on a Mac). Right, left, and down cursor keys
 now work. But, the up cursor key is still being grabbed and used for
 taking screenshots. I wonder if some other component is mapping that to
 screenshot function (vaguely remember some talk about adding Print Screen
 as a new screen shot key, maybe clobbering my up cursor)?
