Hello again,

You were right. Restarting X does change the cursor, but only for hovering
over the desktop. In all other applications, and also when hovering the
panel, the system
default is used, which is the white dmz cursor since I installed that.
Maybe the default symlink in /usr/share/icons superimposes itself? I'll try
and remove the symlink.

EDIT: No, that doesn't help. This time, instead of the white dmz cursor, I
the old black X cursor and the cursor I set appears only when hovering the
Oddly enough, the Chromium browser gets the default cursor in everything,
except for its address bar or other UI parts where there's input required.
But I guess those are just the parts not styled by GTK. Could it then be
that GTK has something to do with it?.

EDIT2: No, KDE4 apps also have the same issue. Strange...

Thank you for your time!
