Would be a different cursor when the link opens in a new window.

I know I often get taken by surprise when the link opens in a new window, it would be neat to have a little icon next to the hand to indicate that that link will open in a new window so I can divert it to a new tab instead if I choose.

(I know it says in the status bar, but that isn't as convenient as a cursor notification)

Errr... sorry, but I don't get what you pretend with this patch.

I don't use _any_ patches right now, and I have the hand link working on webpages, icons... what's wrong?

When loading of a webpage is in progress it displays left_ptr_watch which is the cursor with a watch... but if you're desperate, you can link it to hand_watch or whatever... no patch is necessary for that.

Sorry, but I have missed this one until right now, otherwise I would have asked before.

When i load pages on konqueror i got the black arrow with clock which is into the source code, my patch load the working cursor defined by the qt patch to "XC_clock"

If you symlink:

08e8e1c95fe2fc01f976f1e063a24ccd -> left_ptr_watch

you shouldn't need any patch. It just works for me (well, I'm using KDE CVS, but it's been working for a long while now)
