I have a longtime problem with Grab selected region, use delay and Capture cursor. I use this function from the popup menu of the tray icon. After starting SSC, at first it does not use any delay. From the second attempt onward delay is working. I have changed the mouse cursor from the default to "Bronze" and installed another mouse driver paralel to the touchpad of my notebook, and the mouse pointer is gone from the capture. As far as I remember it does not work on my desktop computer, too. Both Vista, SP, update to the latest revision.
