That can mean that the people that are trying to answer questions here 
just don't know. I don't know for sure, but I think that this cannot be 
changed via configuration.

I think you will find that somewhere in the Wine source code, the 
pointers are defined, bit by bit. You probably would need to find that 
spot and modify the bits. I suspect a starting point is the function 
create_cursor() in dlls/x11drv/mouse.c. You would need to track down 
where it gets the bit definitions from, perhaps by using relay tracing.
