Pointer theme changes working fine in kde 4.4.2 rel 3 here on openSuSE 11.3
Do other themes show up but just won't change?  What happens when you click
on the apply button?

You might try editing ~/.kde4/share/config/kcminputrc (or wherever fedora
puts it) and changing the theme there by hand to see if that works.
