No Cursor visible trying to place a Formula-Textfield

When trying to place a drawing object (line, shape, textbox) or a formula object (all) inside a writer document, there is no cursor visible.
see attached picture.
So all placing is only possible "by feeling" - that is strange.
After object is inserted it can by positioned.

I cannot confirm with Version:
Build ID: 6a37faafa545ccf0b242d4f3b179dcbe710a2814
TinderBox: Win-x86@42, Branch:master, Time: 2015-05-06_00:28:29

Thomas, what's your version of LO?
Comment 2 Thomas Krumbein 2015-05-07 06:51:10 UTC
Hey raal,

Yes, my version is:
Version: (x64)
Build-ID: f0853d5c2c38b050fbfd48e09cd0bf0b400aaef8
Gebietsschema: de_DE

So, I checked it again with a 32bit Build on a different computer (Win Vista) - with version 

and can confirm it again. 

No visible Cursor when selecting a drawing-tool and want to place it. 
Happend in all modules:

Steps to reproduce:
- Open a new Document (writr, calc, draw ... no matter).
- activat draw-functions (toolbar)
- select one tool (line , square, eclipse ... no matter) 
- move mouse cursor inside document - he disappear. No visible feedback. No Idea where you start your grafic....

Test today with version 

same behavior. 

Additional: If an object is created and visible and I want to move or manipulate a point of the object - cursor disapperars right over the point. He appears again, when I move the mouse a littel away from the point.

The problem is not only Writer...
Sorry, I close duplicate of Bug 91485 (newer but more general).
