Bug Description

when i change my x11 mouse theme, i need to restart X for the theme to apply.

BUT: befor i restart X when i go in firefox, the cursor changes but only in firefox...

using ubuntu 9.04

I can confirm that. Exactly the same happens to me as well. I am using Karmic, just updated.

Problem* still exists in 9.10, Karmic Koala. It would be interesting to know why the cursor image updates for Firefox, but not anything else**.

*Not really a problem, a restart takes what, two seconds? More of an annoyance, if anything.

**I've only noticed the change in Firefox, it's possible that other applications recognise the change in cursor image as well.
