Hi, Mark:  When in edit mode there used to be a cursor that indicated 
the current position.  Now it usually isn't visible, or sits at the 
start or end.  The cursor gave trouble with one of the earlier Qt 
updates, I think, but I didn't find a reference.  Something to do with 
undrawing it and redrawing it in the right place, or twice with a 
1-pixel shift, iirc.

In truth, editing without it is possible once one understands the 
limitations, but it would be nice to get it back.

Yesterday I 'downgraded' to master on the F30 box - had segfaults on a 
retune in render - and the editor there now has quirks with keyframe and 
single-frame steps that weren't there before.  Again inconvenient but 
not killers.

Would probably need a lot of commentary as well.  I'll try the other 
problems first.
