I try to fit 1px grid as far as possible:

The SVG > PNG works well for trivial shapes with horizontal or
vertical lines, like:

http://dev.laptop.org/~manuq/cursors_test/test_1px.svg
http://dev.laptop.org/~manuq/cursors_test/test_1px.png

(the exported PNG is scaled 400% with no interpolation to better see it)

However, for non-trivial shapes, the lines are blurred and occupy more
than 1 pixel with different shades of gray:

http://dev.laptop.org/~manuq/cursors_test/test_1px-2.png

What does the hardware do with that?  I expect this (handcrafted 1px
circle in GIMP):
