Cursor goes to arrow regardless of tool selected

I've run into a really weird problem.  I might be using the brush or clone stamp.  Suddenly, my brush cursor turns to a standard white arrow and stays there regardless of what tool I select. True whether I use my Cintiq and pen or whether I use a mouse on another monitor.  If I open a new file, the brush will work for a time before it reverts to the white cursor.  My only recourse is to shut down Photoshop and restart, which is annoying as hell.  My efficiency is 100%.  Does anyone know what is happening?  Better yet, how to correct it?

Have you tried resetting your preferences? Will it do that if you are just using the mouse and don't have the Cintiq plugged in?

Hi there -- 

I am experiencing the same issue with PS 21.2.3, Windows, and a Wacom Intuos.

Did you ever find a solution?  I am experiencing the same problem with my Wacom.  I think it is related to using the Space bar to pan the image.

Yes, I also think it is relating to the space bar/pan.  Unfortunately, no, I haven't found a solution.
