Xorg, Openbox?, Cursor appears stretched on dual monitor system.
I'm using two monitors, and my cursor is larger than it should be. It wasn't this way when I started with one 1680x1050 and one 1024x768 monitor, but now with one landscape 1680x1050 and one portrait 1680x1050, this has happened. My .xprofile looks like this, in case it's relevant:

xrandr --output DVI-0 --left-of DVI-1 --auto --rotate left --pos 0x0
xrandr --output DVI-1 --auto --pos 1050x345

and I tried to force the cursor to be smaller using .xdefaults:


Xcursor.theme: DMZ-Black
Xcursor.size: 16

I'm actually using DMZ-White, but I used black in that config to make sure I noticed any changes. Some strange behaviors are exhibited:

When I'm at my login screen, my cursor is DMZ-white and the correct size. For a little bit after I log in, (Perhaps before or while Xrandr is doing it's thing), I get a correctly sized DMZ-Black cursor, but once my monitors are setup properly, I end up with a funny looking stretched, fuzzy cursor that is DMZ-White themed.

If I had to guess, X isn't figuring out properly what size cursor to use because of my monitors...but for some reason it's also ignoring .Xdefaults. Is there anyway to make it either be correct in the first place, or respect .Xdefaults? Thanks.

Well if you get a larger monitor the cursor would probably look smaller...

Sorry but I'm not sure here, I just wanted to throw my dumb comment in since im bored.
