It's a gegl.

Shipping large cursors of copyrighted cartoon characters is probably not a good

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-04-02 19:49:30 UTC
To be a bit more specific...  "gumby" is a trademark of the owners of the
Gumby cartoon and figure.  It is a bit unfortunate that X11 decided to include
a cursor named "gumby" way back when.  While the cursor name itself doesn't
violate anything, the official gumby images themselves of the cartoon character
gumby are trademarked, and as such they will not appear in Red Hat Linux.
