I haven't seen the yellow cursor for quite a while, but thought that
it disappeared after I changed GIMPs cursor preferences. Lets see..
... oh, OK - the cursor preferences are _not_ set to black and white
bitmap any more and the cursors are displayed correctly. So this
means the problem is gone after all. (Tried with GIMP 2.3.16)
And yes, there have been some X11.app updates from Apple in the last
6 months or so.
Remember: There are only two tools in life. WD-40, for when something
doesn't move, and should, and Duct Tape, for when something is moving
and it shouldn't.
So does the universe explode if you spray duct tape with WD-40?
