Description of problem:
When mousing over a terminal with a black background the cursor color is black
with a grey outline. The grey is to dark on the black, so you can hardly see the
cursor. If the outline what white or a lighter shade of grey it would work
better. This isn't because the cursor is going away. I can still see the cursor
it is just really hard to make out.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rawhide
2. change terminal background color to back
3. mouse over

Actual Results:  can't see cursor

Expected Results:  it would be nice if the color where ligher

Fixed long ago.  Install Red Hat Linux 9.  Also, it wasn't an XFree86 bug,
it was a mouse cursor graphic image bug, not cursors that are part of XFree86,
but part of redhat-artwork.
