Adjusting the size of cursor on HP-UX

I am running a Java client application on HP-UX(version 11.11). The application displays a file structure. On clicking a particular icon, it displays the contents of that folder.
On clicking the icon, a hourglass and a cursor appears (as it does in all Windows applications). However, the size of hourglass and cursor is not proportional to the size of the text (it's too large in comparison with the size of the text). Can anyone let me know about the cause of this and recommend a solution?

Is this the default system "hourglass" cursor, or is this a custom cursor created from an image? If it's the default, then it's more of an issue with the windowing system on HP-UX than Java, and if it's a custom cursor then you just need to use a smaller image...

However, unless you've got access to the application source, then there's not really a way to change this. (Unless it's a custom cursor and you can figure out where they're loading the image from and change it... )
