I don't think animated cursors are supported. I believe the new color 
cursor feature just translates standard image formats to the very 
specific requirements that cursors have in LiveCode. We used to have to 
do some of that ourselves, only with more limitations on color depth. 
Gifs for sure won't work, because they will get translated to the 
engine's internal format, so they are no longer gifs any more. Or, 
that's my take on it anyway.
