Mouse Theme in kde from slackware -current


Hi All,
I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed this, or if its just my system, when I select any other mouse theme in the kde control center applet, it only uses a few of the cursors from the theme, for example, the main pointer cursor, the text select cursor and the busy cursor are changed, but the link pointer, help pointer, and all the resize pointers do not get themed.
For clarity, this behavior is the same whether I use the built in themes (red glass, whiteglass) or any themes I download from kde-look. I've also tried installed my own theme in my home directory and it does the exact same thing...it makes me think something isn't compiled correctly in the -current kde 3.3.2.

Yea it does, I actually wanted to use the Bluecurve cursors...
The really funny thing is in GTK based apps, like firefox or gaim while running them in kde they use the full theme (except resizing windows 'cause thats done by kwin) but the link cursor and wait, cursors are all themed inside the gtk window!

Installing the mouse theme in ~/.icons seems to have fixed the problem. But it's a half-assed solution because this way every user has to install the theme.
