The length-4 version is X only.  "This form of the command will not work
on Macintosh or Windows computers" -- man Tk_GetCursor

This is the version that works on Windows:
    % . configure -cursor @treeview.cur ;# wish, tested
    t.configure(cursor="@treeview.cur")  # python + tkinter, not tested
(treeview.cur is a cursor file that I found in the BLT source directory,
but any Windows-format .cur or .ani file is supposed to work)

Keep in mind that these filenames are always relative to the working
directory, not necessarily to the location of your script or the Python
