That's got to be one of the strangest things I've seen in a long time.

I'll be damned if under W2K 16bpp modes on my Voodoo 3 cards the cursor
comes back as "ficon=*TRUE*, x/yhot=*16*", but under WinXP it always
returns as a proper cursor, no matter what the bpp.

Have you got any idea what could be going on here?  That's a perfectly fine
workaround you've put in to catch when the OS call silently fails, but I
can't imagine what the root cause would be...
