Cursor issues in Tiger

I too have seen this, but not only in Tiger, but Panther and even WinXP.
The cursor just seems to get stuck after leaving an editable text fld. I
think Jerry Daniels has a bug report on this.
My fix is to 'start using stack "altCursorLib"'
The lastest version of altCursorLib can be found in the SQLite Demo
or you can just type in the message box:
go URL "http://www.gadgetplugins.com/altsqlite/SQLiteDemo.rev"
While you're there, you might want to spend 5 minutes and do a walk-thru
of the demo (though it's not tested yet on Tiger).
