It seems that after hitting C-g, the cursor sometimes changes to a
watch and stays like that even when emacs isn't busy at all (e.g. it
accepts input from the keyboard).

When this happens, I typically have to move the cursor to the menu
bar to make it go back to the normal cursor.

Here is what I do:

emacs -q --no-site-file

move the mouse cursor into the emacs frame

C-h l


After 1 second, the mouse cursor changes to a watch...
