I have got exactly the same problem. It seems if i change the to
bluecurve cursor theme using System -> Prefs -> Mouse it seems to
change the settings in the current active window. All others are the
same old cursors.

If i change the cursor theme with all active windows closed the theme
doesn't change the cursors at all.
