Inconsistent mouse size settings

Alright, here's what I've discovered:

- Gtk2 (geany) workspace, Xulrunner (pencil), and Qt (pyqt example) all
show the same inconsistent mouse size behavior. The theme is the same, just
the size changes to the one I set.
- Gtk3 (gedit), OpenGL (houdini) , the toolbars of Gtk2 apps, and the rest
of Xfce, the size stays at the large default size (though, again, the theme
stays the same).

So for whatever reason, Xfce, Gtk3, and the toolbars of Gtk2 programs
either don't know about the user's size preference, or it's being
overwritten somewhere. ToZ's suggestion, in order to get the theme setting
to be set properly, worked great. If only the size would also work across
all applications...
