Bug report #958
wrong cursor after quiting edit mode

1. add a vector layer
2. toggle edit on
3. select some editing tool
4. toggle edit off
The cursor remains for the last selected edit tool, although editing is disabled - confusing. If the last tool selected before quitting the edit mode is an edit tool, the cursor should be reset to what it was before entering the edit mode; propably by activating back the tool that was in use before toggling edit on.
As it currently is, a novice user happens to be not sure if he really quit the edit mode, since his cursor is the same as it was when he was editing (folks who I teach QGIS have this problem). BTW - I suggest to change cursor's color too for edit tools, eg. to red, to make the distinction even clearer.
QGIS 0.9.2 SVN r8171, QT 4.3.2.

This bug has further consequences:
1. toggle edit on for a line or polygon layer
2. start digitizing a segment, don't finish it
3. toggle edit off
You end up with a mixture of digitizing mode turned off and on, with all it's implications including confusion and possible data loss.
Still present in .

Not completely. Still:
1. start qgis
2. don't select any tool
3. add a shapefile (eg. polygon)
4. select "add polygon" tool
5. toggle editing off
The cursor remains like it was in the editing mode.
