Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

Hello. After the fixes for #2714 improved so much my quality of life I became encouraged to report some issues I have with xpra.
This issue is a little minor, but easy to reproduce, I am betting that a fix on this issue will also cover more severe things that sometimes happen.

The issue is related to drag and drop, and I think it happens on any open program, but i will use gedit here which is easy available for testing.

If i drag something with the mouse, the pointer changes properly to drag and drop pointer (usually some kind of hand instead of the default pointer), then when I release the mouse button the pointer does not return to the original icon (I mean release within the same window, drag and drop across programs is not needed).

I attach pictures for three states when using gedit. Initially in the first.png the pointer is a text selection pointer (like the "I" letter), then i start dragging a text selection i did before and the pointer changes (second.png), finally I release the button and the pointer stays with the hand pointer (third.png) when it should go back to the original form.

I am using one of the latest betas for 3.0.x in the client and server.

Extra detail: The pictures I included were doctored a little bit to include the mouse pointer because taking a screenshot on windows does not include the mouse pointer, but the mouse pointers I added are pretty similar to the observed pointers.

The problem only occurs with ms windows clients.
The server is not sending the icon to reset to the cursor, like it does with Linux clients.
This can be seen using XPRA_SAVE_CURSORS=1 on the server. (can be used at both ends too)
