Problem description

This behavior change was noticed for me when I upgraded from 170709 to 171205. When the mouse moves into ConEmu from either the left or right sides with Putty, the cursor icon gets stuck on the resize icon.

Steps to reproduce

I tried all ConEmu versions over the last six months. The issue started on version
171203. It is not present in version 171117 or earlier.

In case it's helpful, I updated to 180108, but did not see a change in behavior.

Same issue in 180206 alpha (on both Win XP and Win 7). If I bring the cursor into the ConEmu PuTTY window via the window's tab, the cursor is fine. From either window edge, or a corner, the cursor is a "window resize" cursor. (It still works, but it's distracting, and it's more difficult to pinpoint the cursor's hotspot.)
