SDL Cursor color

Is there any way I can keep the default mouse cursor from turning black when it is over my SDL window? I tried hiding it before drawing, and than making it visible again. I've tried forcing a cursor refresh by sending NULL to SDL_SetCursor. Am I just going to have to make a white cursor and override the default one?

Yes because SDL uses the Mac-OS style cursor hardcoded in for it's default cursor (see default_cursor.h in the SDL source), so the only way to use a regular Window's style cursor is to make that custom one yourself. You can do that or just hide the cursor and make your own bitmap styled one using a SDL_Surface instead (which is what you have to do if you want a custom cursor that supports color).
