A fix for a miscolored X11 cursor on Intel Macs

here is a patch that is effectively the same, tho I haven't tested it. Just put it together at the request of so many users. I lost the original patch in desktop cleanup months ago, but it also only made this kind of change, nothing suspicious.

you'll need to grab the X11 package at http://www.opensource.apple.com/darwinsource/10.4.6.x86/
That's the x86 source, tho the ppc dist works fine. When I made this version, the x86 download link was broken and had to use the ppc codebase. I had hoped the higher version number of the x86 meant it would have this fix or something similar, but I didn't see it.

Expect Apple to get it into Leopard. Last time I made a system patch, it was included in the next major release. That was the Wallstreet fan-in-sleep problem, for those who remember that. :) http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=2002050209205249 Might have to pressure Apple a lot more if you want it sooner. i'd be suprised if 10.4.7 had it.

Cheers.
