I had similar issues. What I ended up doing was putting everything under 

             cursors -> ../mytheme/cursors

Where default/index.theme contains:

     [Icon Theme]

I also had to create quite few symlinks in mytheme/cursors for the 
cursor-names which were missing (there are lots of aliases). The 
relevant cursor-names can be found by looking at some of the other 
cursor themes in /usr/share/icons.
