Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) changed the task status from Needs Triage to Confirmed.Jun 2 2020, 6:57 PM
Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) changed the subtype of this task from "Report" to "Known Issue".

This has been a known issue for a long time.
It is simply something that was not supported.
But this lack of support should be indicated by the cursors (which is not the case).

I think it deserves an investigation.
