You can able to use old spinners in 1.3.12, although it got more
complicated.  Galeon doesn't use the spinner bits in gconf, but the GTK2
style.  See:

You can also do the worldwide update.  Instead of working in ~/.icons as
shown above, do it in /usr/share.  See, for example:

Of course, I like the Glossy Spinner in the second link, but it is
32x32, while my Bluecurve is 36x36, so I used convert to resize it. 
Note, Galeon was using the Bluecurve spinner, so that's where I put my
new one.

But it now works quite nicely!
I am a theoretical chemist.  Fear me!
