Mouse cursor blending

I have a problem that I believe is related to the way X blends 
semi-transparent mouse cursors.  For instance, if I created a solid 
white cursor with the alpha channel set at 50%, I would expect it to be 
invisible against a white background.  Instead, it is rendered as grey 
(but it is semi-transparent).  What can I do to make it render the way I 
would expect?
