Result: The cursor stays an I-beam after the window goes away. Once I
move the mouse over any area which would affect a change, the expected
change happens. So here, the problem is a minor one of the cursor not
updating when the field closes.
As for the "junk" cursor image, as you sure you're using v2.6.1?
From the v2.6.1 changelog:
Bug 885: Corrupted cursor issue
In previous engine versions, setting the defaultCursor
property to a non built-in image and then setting the
cursor to a non built-in image would result in the
default cursor becoming corrupted. This has been fixed.
