WPI, eXodus and the default cursor

Shifting focus to the MacIntosh:

Most of the time the "cursor" on the Mac is an arrow pointing up
and to the left at an angle of about 30 degrees from the vertical.

When running macX, this is also the cursor that appears in the main list
window.  When menus are pulled down, apparently WPI takes over and displays
an arrow pointing to the right.
HOWEVER,
In eXodus, the default cursor in the Main List Window is a big ugly "X".
We have managed to get that to be a left pointing arrow by specifying
the default cursor font to be decw$cursor. 
This is a lot better than the X cursor, but, tho it points to the left,
it does so at a 45 degree angle which gives a rather flaccid look and feel to 
operations in the main window.   What designation of default cursor would
restore the proper angle to the arrow?
