Odd Mouse Pointer Behavior in WaterGEMS

Since I updated to CONNECT Edition 1 of WaterGEMS, my cursor disappears from the screen in certain operations. The normal "select" tool is fine. The "pan" tool works but shows a very small icon. On "zoom in" or "zoom out" the cursor disappears. I have dealt with it by guessing at where I am on the screen but now I am trying to add a Bing map and the cursor to register the map (pick a point on display) also disappears.
