  Mouse cursor sizes are inconsistent within gtk2 apps

Status in “gtk+2.0” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After updating Ubuntu 14.04 yesterday I noticed that the mouse cursor
  size was changing inside of GTK2 applications. I have a 1920x1080 15"
  display running with the UI set to 1.25 scale. On GTK2 applications,
  the pointer changes size within applications. For example, in Pidgin,
  the pointer will appear enlarged within the text window for the
  conversation, but appears the normal smaller size in the border around
  the window, as well as in menus (both pop-up and drop-down), window
  title bar, and the toolbar above the reponse text window.

  Firefox is also affected inside of the browser window, bookmark
  toolbar, and regular toolbars, and most oddly, the cursor changes size
  when clicking in a sub-folder of bookmarks. When the sub-folder opens,
  the cursor drops to the small size, but when the cursor enters the
  popped-open menu, it enlarges again. Pop-up menus in the browser
  window also change size from the larger cursor to the smaller one.

  On a second system with a 1920x1080 20" display, with the UI set to
  1.0 size, the cursor does not appear to change size, but if I change
  the scale to 1.25, the same problem occurs.

  The problem does not occur in GTK3 applications or in Unity.
