1) Open a text document in Writer.
2) move the text cursor to a preferred position in the text, and here create a bookmark.
3) Open the "Navigation" window, and under the voice "bookmark", double click on the bookmark created in 2).
Now, the text cursor is blinking at the right text position where you saved the bookmark.
Here arise the PROBLEM: when you close the "Navigation" window, the text cursor stop blinking and his position become invisible.
.....Note that, as workaround to this problem, I must to minimize the Writer main window and then restore it on the screen, after doing this, the text cursor returns to blink normally.
Another workaround: scroll the document until the hidden text cursor go out of the window and then scroll back the document.
Thanks for filing. This does not happen in 220.127.116.11 on Ubuntu 32 bits with OpenGL (... Options > LibreOffice > View) diabled.

Hi Cor Nouws,
I've tried to change the settings related to OpenGL,hardware acceleration and anti-aliasing, but the problem is still present.

But when navigator is opened, cursor doesn't blink. It blinks again if I double click on the bookmark and also after having close navigator window.

Julien: can you try reproducing the "But when navigator is opened" problem? I can't reproduce even that one.
There are only 3 open bugs in the VclPtr meta report and it would be great, if the whole thing could be closed. It concerns a specific historical situation anyway, so there is no need to keep it open forever.
