If all you want is that all tabs have the same cursor you can do the following:
Then for each Component that is added to the JTabbedPane you have to explicitly set the Cursor to default as in:
panel.setCursor(new java.awt.Cursor(java.awt.Cursor.DEFAULT_CURSOR));
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
