hideous mouse cursor when hovering over hyperlinks.

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

1. On the desktop (unity7, x11), launch any qml app that is capable of displaying hyperlinks (friends-app, webbrowser-app, webapps-container, etc).

2. Mouse over any hyperlink.

3. Observe that it is a 2-bit icon that should have died in the 1980's.

Where is this cursor coming from? It should really be updated to something more modern looking, especially as we converge towards qml/unity8 on the desktop.

(we want to make webapps-container the default webapps experience in 14.04 desktop, but this bug makes the experience very ugly)
