Start Writer, and start inserting a shape from the Drawing toolbar or using the button on the Standard toolbar.
Note how the cursor doesn't switch to the usual crosshair + caret combination, and stays like a regular mouse pointer.
This is a regression introduced by the following commit. Adding Cc: to Noel Grandin, please take a look.

make cursor images part of the theme
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I could reproduce this.
Noel: the problem is cursors aren't in colibre theme package.
Considering core/postprocess/CustomTarget_images.mk and solenv/bin/pack_images.py, it seems the only images taken into account for zip themes packages are either "res" (I suppose "ressource") or "cmd" ("command"), the rest seems ignored.
So doing this fixed the pb for me:
1) move icon-themes/colibre/vcl/cursors/* to icon-themes/colibre/vcl/res
to have icon-themes/colibre/vcl/res/cursors:*
2) in vcl/inc/bitmaps.hlst, replace all vcl/cursors/<file> by vcl/res/cursors/<file>
Noel: any thoughts about https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123796#c2 ? Indeed, if it seems ok to you, I can submit a patch on gerrit.
(let's increase a bit the importance since it's a regression).
thank you Julien for your analysis.
