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

Betreff: Re: IDE Cursor icon often hangs on windows

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.
