mouse cursor and mozilla-but-really-metacity bug

I used up2date to install sawfish, to test out the bug listed below with 
a different window manager, turns out to be metacity is the culprit. 
After confirming this, the software mouse cursor is no longer the 
translucent one with a shadow. I still get the animated hourglass while 
gdm is loading, but it quickly changes to a plain black mouse cursor. 
Anyone know how to fix this? To install sawfish up2date grabbed two 
extra RPMs to meet dependencies, rep-gtk and something else, but I 
didn't write it down. Anyone know what that might be?

Also, does anyone think there's a chance of this getting fixed if I 
submit a bug report against metacity? The problem also exists in firebird.
