I don't understand. The bug report states that the industrial cursor 
theme is missing from a gt2-engine theme? If that is correct, I don't 
understand how that is relevant to what I'm experiencing.

I was using the Dapper Drake CD as an example of being able to reproduce 
what I'm seeing when using Firefox with the whiteglass theme. I don't 
have the Industrial theme installed on my Debian unstable box.
