Several cursor themes use same cursor for both GDK_HAND1 and GDK_HAND2.
In this case there is no difference.
But there are some cursor themes which use different cursors (e.g. DMZ
(White) ) and
provide GDK_HAND2 only (e.g. Arch Cursor Theme (Simple)).

DMZ (White)
HAND1: http://gitorious.org/opensuse/art/blobs/master/cursors/dmz/pngs/48x48/hand1.png
HAND2: http://gitorious.org/opensuse/art/blobs/master/cursors/dmz/pngs/48x48/hand2.png

Arch Cursor Theme (Simple)

Using such themes, you'll see different hands.

The previous screenshot is from Impress with DMZ (White) cursor theme.
It is happened in Writer with ctrl key pressing and Help Viewer as well.
