strange whiteglass cursor behaviour in Xorg with mozilla & thunderbird
I will do my best to describe the problem (feature?) I witness when
using the whiteglass cursor theme under Xorg. I have been using the the
whiteglass cursor since it first became available (Xfree 4.0?) in Debian
unstable, but have always noticed one annoying aspect: When using the
whiteglass cursor theme and I am loading a web page in firefox, or
performing some action in Thunderbird (e.g. deleting mail) the
whiteglass cursor reverts to the old original black style cursor theme
until that action is completed. This only happens when the cursor is in
the browser window, not if I move the pointer to the titlebar of the
window or outside to the root background.
Do I have something misconfigured? I notice the exact same thing when
using Debian on my Thinkpad x40. I have tried to replicate this with
other apps (gtk-gnutelle, abiword) but haven't been able to.
Anybody notice the same?
