[Bug 741474] [NEW] Compiz doesn't appear to respect GNOME's mouse theme setting.


Public bug reported:

When using compiz with a mouse theme other than the default, and the
mouse size changed, only some areas of the screen show the correct mouse
arrow, depending on what window the mouse cursor is over.

The easiest way to reproduce this is in a classic GNOME session, and as

1. Go into appearance preferences, go to the theme page, and click on customize.
2. In the window that opens, go to the pointer page, and choose the DMZ Black theme.
3. Adjust the cursor size to the biggest possible setting.
4. Open gedit, and make sure only gedit is the only open window, so that you have gedit and the desktop behind it.
5. Move the mouse cursor over the window border between the desktop and the gedit window. Notice the grab handle is the correct image for the mouse theme, and in gedit where the cursor image is correct, but for the desktop, the cursor image is the default white small cursor.
