So it is caused by issues with cursor names/aliases.

The cursor types mentioned in the various linked bug reports very 
closely match the ones I had to create symlinks for. I think the reason 
why the symlinks work for me is probably because I am using a simple 
openbox desktop, rather than kde, gnome, etc.
