Changing the X cursor

I am running AfterStep-1.7.150-1 on RH6.0.  I installed
it using a Freshmeat rpm.  It is working well for me.

I would like to change the X cursor used with AfterStep.
The default cursor is a black arrow bordered by white.
I am interested in a cursor that looks like:
  /usr/share/afterstep/desktop/cursors/cursor.xbm

I can get the cursor to change in the background by using:
  xsetroot -cursor ~/cursor.xbm  ~/cursor.xbm.mask
But the cursor is changed back to the default AfterStep
cursor when over the wharf, winlist, or most applications.

I have read through much doc without finding the key to
configure this.  In desperation I am turning to this
mailing list.

Is this possible?  Regards and TIA...
