If you log in from GDM using the 'Run Xclient script' as your session, 
you will not be able to change your mouse cursor theme and size as 
described in the bug report. You must log in using 'Xfce session' for 
the theme and size changes to work. If you want the changes to take 
effect without restarting the X server, execute 'xfwm4 --restart &' from 
a terminal (Note that QT applications need to be restarted to get the 
new cursor theme). Also, some cursor themes have "small/medium/large" 
sets and won't respond to the cursor size hint.

So, maybe the bug is in the session script…
