You're trying to solve the wrong problem :-) The problem is that when
we set the textureName to 0 we essentially kick the GL texture out of
the surface which is then left in a somewhat inconsistent state.
Calling SetCursorProperties again with the same surface will then fail
because the surface no longer has a GL texture associated with it. The
proper way to fix this is to make a copy of the GL texture rather than
playing tricks with the surface loading code.
