bug#22574: 24.5; Mouse pointer border color is set to `Emacs.background` value defined in ~/.Xresources

Michal Rus
1. $ printf 'Emacs.background: #ff0000\nEmacs.pointerColor:
#00ff00\n' > ~/.Xresources

2. $ emacs

3. Evaluate: (set-background-color "blue")

4. The pointer border is red…

There seems to be no .Xresources setting to change the
border. Other applications use *pointerColor2 or
*pointerColorBackground to define this color.

Sounds like a good idea, but when testing this stuff out, I can't really
find that Emacs reacts to pointerColor at all.  I've tried different
toolkits, but the pointer stubbornly is black with a white outline no
matter what I do.  The -mc parameter has no effect for me, either.

Anybody know what's going on?  Perhaps Gnome Shell is overriding the
colours somehow?

Are you remembering to override / merge into the current database the
modified ~/.Xresources settings?

  $ xrdb ~/.Xresources        # replace current settings
  $ xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources # merge with current settings

Thanks,

Yup.  Apparently nothing I do affects the pointer colour at all.
