The cursor's shape doesn't change until I move it (which doesn't seem
like TRT, but the same happens without the patch).

When I move the cursor, its shape change to busy, yes, but when the
execution ends (either by cancelling it with C-g or when it
completes), the shape remains the same (busy).  This problem is
specific to the patched binary.

Here the behavior is equal with or without the patch: the cursor shape
is busy in the original frame (where I started the execution of the
macro) and normal (arrow or I-beam) when I go over the other frame.
