I hope you received the hotfix for the drag/drop issue we have.
About this inquiry - we can't control the cursor right now. We are actually providing much better (IMHO) feedback - Vista like - to the users with the drag preview. Did you notice that the icon is actually changing? You can use the treeview template to modify the drag preview that is displayed.
