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 
stack at:

or you can just type in the message box:
go URL ""

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).
