Bug Description

$ bzr branch lp:~dandrader/+junk/animatedDemos
$ cd animatedDemos/CustomCursor
$ qmake && make
$ cd ..
$ qmlscene CursorShapes.qml -I . -- --desktop_file_hint=/usr/share/applications/gedit.desktop

Currently only the following named cursors still work:
UpArrow, Cross, WhatsThis, DragCopy, Busy, DragMove, DragLink

Might also be due to a change in cursor theme itself (didn't check)?

Worth mentioning that Mir 0.25.0 (released in December) switched the cursor naming scheme to match the CSS spec:

However if you were already using the symbolic constants from <mir_toolkit/cursors.h> then you would not have noticed.

Might need more work...
