Cursor is Hard to See on Dark Background

Reported by Brian Wigginton | January 7th, 2011 @ 01:49 AM

What I did:

Tried to find the cursor with my eyeballs.

What I expected to happen:

It would stick out so I could easily find it with my eyeballs

What actually happened:

My eyeballs couldn't find it immediately

Comparison to Behavior in Textmate

The TextMate cursor is completely white when viewed on a document with a similar background color Kod. When I tried to take a screenshot to show the difference, Grab.app shows the same cursor Kod was showing for Textmate. This makes me think that Textmate is changing the cursor for usability purposes.
