Yep, we are using a 'invisible cursor theme' for Gtk, it is used instead
of X defaults. You can remove link, or if you want to use own
cursorimage instead of invisible one you can simply copy it to

The reason for using this theme is that cursor icon is used for tap&hold
animation, therefore we actually still have cursor (would be also
possible to hide completely from X server by disabling driver funcs
implementing that).
