so the only way I can get the right cursor image is using the screenshot for 
the whole desktop, where the GIMP mouse cursor will not be overridden by the 
screenshot selector cursor. isn't it?
this maybe can be avoided if there's a way to wait _after_ having selected the 
region/window to grab
in this case you can return the GIMP cursor. More than that this can help 
someone to grab desktop sections/windows while using them.
