                            Patch #300 - 2013/12/03

     * amend workaround for Xcursor library from patch #298; the suggested
       solution  for  Debian  #466704 fell afoul of a bug in Xcursor which
       treated an empty value for Inherits= as a valid theme--and resulted
       in   a   stack   overflow   due  to  unbounded  recursion.  Certain
       environments  such  as  XFCE4  exposed the bug. A related report in
       Debian  #531679  was closed without following the recommendation to
       limit stack recursion in this library (reported by Sergey V Dyatko,
       Debian #731269).
