Hi - the I-shaped mouse pointer is black (on white background) in all  
my xterms, and it is yellow on white background in the code pane of  
Wing IDE and in the Python shell and Debug I/O parts of the IDE.

What would the name of the X resource be that controls this colour?  
(Hm, maybe this is where I should download the source and have a look
