SMS remote control cursor disappears in data entry fields

Has anybody else seen this:

When you remote control a Win95 PC and get into a data entry field or anywhere that text is to be entered, such as the URL line in IE, the cursor will disappear.  It will return if the (invisible) pointer is moved our to the typing area, unless the keyboard buffer is operating very slowly and placing the characters painfully slowly in the entry area.  Once all of the data has been displayed, the cursor with return but often the session will not update the screen and we have to restablish "remote control" over the PC.  

This doesn't seem to happen with NT/2000 and I'm not sure about 98 as we are still evaluating the problem.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
