I animate a CICON by USR GETPICT the background, placing the CICON, then
restoring the background with PICTURE, moving the position, and so on.
It works fine until I have another window on the top of the CICON
rectangle. USR GETPICT then records the top window.
The CICON is a slow moving object (a ship on a map) so I don't need to
animate when another window is masking the CICON rectangle. How can I
prevent this to happen when: 1) one of my application window is on the
top (Preference window, etc) or, 2) a Finder/other appl is on the top?
