Mozilla vs Gnome - Mouse Cursor change!?

When using Mozilla under Gnome (Slack 9.0 + DroplineGnome 2.2.3) and that it is loading a page, I have a waiting cursor that isn't the one i've configured by default. (I'm using cyrstal-cursor for XFree86 and it's working great with Gnome)

The one that Mozilla is using seem's to be WhiteGlass default waiting cursor...

Same thing for the LINK cursor...

Look's like Mozilla's changing the theme of the cursor when an action is running. (If it's the normal pointer cursor, I have the home I've configured)..

I have this problem too. I find that Open office will change the cursor as well. I have not found a resolve to this, though am not that worried as it does not affect the performance....

Thumbs down Pointer change

It's just that it "kills" a little bit of the "Overall" Look&Feel of my gnome setup... I know it's not a usability bug but when I show my Linux Box to impress other folks, it just seems "buggy" to them...
