Color depth of the mouse cursor

Advertisement
Upgraded to srss 4.2 yesterday and discovered the addition of Xrender support. After enabling it the mouse cursor switches to an animated one. This looks really horrendous, since the mousecursor is displayed in black and white (1bit color depth). Does anyone know how to increase the color depth of the mouse cursor? The screen is configured with a color depth of 24 bits

Gnome 2.16.0 on RedHat 5.3 with Metacity as windowmanager. The mouse displays just fine, but is was real bw non animated before Xrender. Now it is animated and the animation is converted to 2 bit, including dithering for shadows. Regard this as an esthetical bug. A resolution would be to search for a 2 bit mouse theme (or create one)
