are you sure?

following your suggestion, i updated your original test case by 
replacing "self.setCursor" with "self.viewport().setCursor" in the 
"updateItems" method.

now if F3 is pressed whilst the cursor is over a rectangle it will 
change to a cross shape. then, with the cursor *still over the 
rectangle*, if F1 is pressed the cursor changes to a hand. but now move 
the cursor outside of the rectangle, and instead of changing to an 
arrow, it will change back to a cross!

can you confirm this?

if not, things must work differently on windows (i'm on linux).
