SCI: GK1: Wrong cursor in Jackson Square park

Sometimes the Walk cursor displays the wrong cursor in Jackson Square park. When walking in between the four rooms of the park, the new room will load and the cursor will change to something else and stay that way. I've seen it be the the Waiting cursor (the "GK" shield) and also the Open cursor (the door). It will keep functioning as Walk until mousing up to the menu or doing something like interacting with someone or leaving the park. I've seen this happen when when the mime follows you and also when you're walking back to the artist with his drawing. I haven't seen it happen when just walking around the park while nothing interesting is happening. I've never seen it happen in the original game.
I've attached a save game where it's about to happen. Walk to the mime to get him to follow you then walk south. When the southern room loads the cursor will become the Open cursor, but it's still in Walk mode. Walking east works too, but you're likely to immediately run into a wandering character, triggering a mime animation and restoring the cursor. Either way, if you can avoid people, you can keep walking around park rooms with the wrong cursor.
