The offending sprites are editable text or field objects?
Your cursor code is conflicting with some other code?
Something else is wrong?
Are you setting the cursor method, as in _player.cursor(280), or are you
using the cursor sprite property, as in sprite(X).cursor = 280 ?

Two of the problems are picture images.
One is a text field over a shape.
I am using:
There are possibly two issues here:
1. 'sprite(x).cursor = y' takes priority over 'cursor z'.
2. 'sprite(x).cursor' actually affects the whole channel, not just the current sprite span
3. When Director sets the cursor of a sprite automatically (for digital video, editable text, ...) and the playback jumps to a frame where the sprite no longer exists, Director mistakenly resets the cursor of the sprite to -1 (arrow) and not to 0 (return control to the system)
You might find that the problem clears up if you add the following behavior to the sprites where the wrong cursor is shown:
sprite(me.spriteNum).cursor = 0
