Douglas,

I tried a year ago to make a nice Mickey hand cursor 16x16 but 
- colored cursors didn't seem supported
- colors didn't dispay correctly
- transparency masks not supported on non-bitmap images.

No one ever helped so Im stuck as you are...
I think there's a bugzilla for this too...

cheers
Xavier
