Synesthetic feedback in computer GUIs

OK, I have a weird question for all of you.

Let's say you are working on a computer, and there is a window on the screen that somehow locks your pointer inside it. When you move your mouse, the pointer hits the edge of the window and doesn't move on beyond that window, as if it's hit a wall. You with me so far? OK, so here's the question:

When you see the pointer hit the window's "wall" do you feel it, too? Do you sense a subtle, imaginary feedback when you see that? Or is it purely visual and nothing else?
