Esoteric mouse pointer issues in XFCE

I rather like the DMZ Black mouse pointer theme, even though it is very similar to the Adwaita theme, which comes installed on Debian Wheezy XFCE. In the optimistic hope that there may be a handful of people among the billions that inhabit the Earth who share the same taste, I'm going to describe a problem and document the solution I found.

After installing the DMZ theme from the Debian repository and choosing DMZ Black in settings, the mouse pointer appears black over some applications and white over others.

The solution is to look in /usr/share/icons/default and edit index.theme:
[Icon Theme] 
As described here.
