Thanks for the suggestion. As a matter of fact, I have this already modified. Anyway, it does not change the cursor size when it is already "inside" the source text. So to speak, it changes the mouse-trackpad pointer when you move it with the mouse or with a trackpad, but it does not change the insertion point that you get when you click into the source window (so, if you want to locate the exact point where you left editing, it's difficult). This happens in Mail, in TeXShop, in LibreOffice; don't know about other applications.

And, by the way, in 10.7.5 this is not in System Preferences -> (System) Accessibility -> Display, but in System Preferences -> (Personal) Universal Access -> Mouse & Trackpad -> Cursor size. Perhaps this has changed with system version...
