[SDL] mouse.set_visible + directfb fails

the command pygame.mouse.set_visible(0) does not hide the directfb mouse 
pointer when useing SDL_VIDEODRIVER="directfb".

I am not sure if this is an sdl or a pygame problem as I don't know about 
either's code. 

Don't take my word for it, but I think this is a proper example of how to hide 
the mouse with directfb:

  DFBDisplayLayerConfig dlc;
  layer->GetConfiguration( layer, &dlc );
  layer->SetCursorOpacity( layer, 0 );
