Thanks to Chip Cleary at ILS for help w/ this.  My error was in failing to
keep the resource file open throughout the use of the cursor.

The following works, using get-resource as defined in resources.lisp.

  (setq *my-cursor* (get-resource "CURS" <name-or-number>))
  (defmethod view-cursor ((self my-view) p)
    (declare (ignore p))
