"gnome-terminal also has a nice feature in that it makes the pointer fade away as soon as the user starts typing. No more moving the mouse around to get the pointer out of your way. An invisible pointer might seem like a human factors problem in its own right, but the simple fact is that you generally have to move the pointer to find it anyway."
On gnome one can configure <Ctrl> key to locate the pointer. Use Preferences-->Mouse-->Cursors to set it.
