IDE Cursor icon often hangs on windows

Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
Hello,

On Windows, since LC 8 the icon of the cursor often "hangs", it just keeps
the icon from the last action and doesn't changes back to the standard
pointer icon when moving around the screen, so that I often have to select
any action with the "resize cursor" - just an example.

It's not essential, but a little bit annoying. Anything I can do? Is it
known? Shall a file a bug report, though it will be hard to make a recepie?

Tiemo

If you do file a bug report please post the URL here.  I've seen this
with v9 under Ubuntu, but haven't reported it yet as it's intermittent
and I haven't yet found a recipe.  If I do come up with a recipe I'll
share it here.

Same here. I see this all the time. It's annoying and intermittent.

This has been happening for years, it just may be more frequent now. I've
had a handler in my private backscript for probably 10 years that does
"unlock cursor" when I type "uc" in the message box. There's no consistent
recipe. My best guess is that it happens when the cursor is moving so fast
that any messages that track the mouse are either not sent or the mouse is
no longer over the original control when it is received.

AW: IDE Cursor icon often hangs on windows

Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
Ok, I found a small recipe for one of these situations and file a QR:

There are other situations and other cursors, but this is one of them
