 We have a long history of setting the Sugar cursor with many races.

 1) First, we tried to set the gnome cursor_theme to use the sugar one:

 2) Because this broke the GNOME cursor when logging into GNOME we did
 reset the cursor once we logged into Sugar "xsetroot -cursor_name
 left_ptr" [http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/1433 #1433]

 3) We moved this code around since the "Alt+Space" shortcut was not
 working anymore, we do set the the cursor once the window-manager-changes
 for the shell window [[http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/1476 #1476]

 4) we once more moved the code to supress a race condtion: #1371

 5)wrong cursor on welcome screen [http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/10712

 Let's try to fix this for good.
