Photoshop: Type tool cursor bug in CS5?

In previous versions of Photoshop, when the type tool hovered over an editable text layer, it would switch from the type tool with a small marquee around it, to the simple up and down type tool. Now it is "stuck" as the up and down type tool all the time.. As a result, I don't know if a click is going to take me into an editable text layer, or create a new type layer. Seems like a bug, but not sure??

Howdy Elliott,

Wow, this IS a valid bug. It seems to be limited to the Mac platform only as it's fine on Windows. I've logged it and we'll look into it further. Thanks for your help.

How could that slip by QA? That's a pretty huge glaring bug!! Just saying!

There were a large number of cursor-related bugs introduced transitioning from Mac's Carbon to Cocoa, some subtle and others near-fatal. Ironically, we did manage to catch and correct the overwhelming majority... You can get some insight here: http://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/2011/03/...

Any word on when this will be fixed? I'm more amazed at how long such an obvious bug has gone unnoticed.....
