I just found this page that says the limitation on OS X is 64x64 32 big  
cursors and that if you want to implement larger cursors to use a  
window that tracks with the cursor:

<http://developer.apple.com/documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/ 
OSXHIGuidelines/index.html?http://developer.apple.com/documentation/ 
UserExperience/Conceptual/OSXHIGuidelines/XHIGDragDrop/ 
chapter_3_section_1.html>

So it appears the method I'm currently using for drag and drop is  
partially correct.  Scott Rossi offered some suggestions which I think  
will help fix some of the other problems I was having.  Better cursor  
support would still be nice though.
