I have set up tightvncserver and lxde on my Xubuntu (13.10). When I connect to the vnc server the remote lxde desktop shows up but I get a bold X cursor. The cursor becomes normal if I run 'lxappearance'. My xstartup as below:

#!/bin/sh
export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1
export XMODIFIERS=@im=gcin
export GTK_IM_MODULE=gcin
export QT_IM_MODULE=gcin
[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
autocutsel -fork
gcin &
exec startlxde

How can I get a normal arrow cursor when I connect to the vnc server?

Thank you for helping.
