You can do this:

Put the ID of image "whatever cursor" of card "myCard" of stack
"myStack" into tID

Set the cursor to tID

This way, it figures out the right ID number whenever it switches
cursors - thus avoiding a problem if the ID has changed.

Hi all,

All built-in cursors IDs have been changed between Rev 2.6 and 2.6.1.
For instance ID 202619 has been changed for 76 and there is no  
numeric relation between the old and the new ones.
This is not important for standalones but is really annoying for  
stacks, utilities, plugins, etc.
I know that ID 1 to 100 are theoretically reserved for built-in cursors.
This feature was not respected: Now it is and you have to revise all  
your stuff  :-(
The lesson seems to be: don't trust the image library provided by  
RunRev and import by yourself all needed images into a stack if you  
don't plan to make a standalone ;-)
