[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#671121: lightdm and gnome-shell: cursor's theme is set back to default

Package: lightdm
Version: 1.2.0-1
Severity: normal

I've installed lightdm ( with the gtk ui ), and I'm experiencing an issue with
the cursor theme: after logging in on a gnome-shell session, the cursor's theme
is stuck to the default black one ( which is the pointer that normally shows on
both lightdm and gdm3 ).
Checking with both gconf-editor and gnome-tweak-tools, the cursor's theme is
correnctly set, and moving the pointer on certain windows ( such as Opera's one
) makes it show the correct theme. I don't know if this is relevant, but I'm
letting Nautilus handle my desktop ( so that I actually see icons on it ).
This happens with both the unstable and experimental versions of lightdm.
Also, googling a bit I've come across this:
which, I believe, may refer to my same problem...
