as said, I cannot tell you which of the upgraded components fixed the problem, but it disappeared.

I updated to libffi-3.0.8, and to the following gnustep-packages, and the problem is gone:

I too think this is a back/gui problem since I experience a similar behaviour when drag/dropping items inside gworkspace

I had some time to recompile with -base linked against ffcall, but the problem is still there.

I think this is rather a gui or back problem, as I get the same problem with other applications as well.
Not sure how this is happeniong, as we thought to have resolved all previous issues of that category before and I remember this working well for some time.

not really sure, whether this is a gorm issue, or a -gui, or -backend, but at least I've observed it within gorm.
after connecting an outlet or action with sth. else in gorm, the cursor stays the green arrow when hovered over a gorm window.
When I move the cursor over the desktop or other window, then it becomes the ordinary arrow.
I'm on openbsd 4.4, i386.
gnustep-base-1.16.5 (linked against libffi-3.0.7)
gnustep-back-0.14.0 (using art or xlib, doesn't matter)
IIRC, the problem did not happen, when linking -base against ffcall instead of libffi.
I'll reinstall everything, linking against ffcall later today.
