strange cursor

Sometimes, the cursor theme suddenly switches from my selected theme (Breeze) to some other weird theme.
The theme only changes over certain windows - most often Konsole.
Changing the cursor theme in System Settings has no effect on the affected window, only restarting the program fixes it.

I don't know how to reproduce this because it seems to be completely random.
Maybe the weird theme is KDE Classic?
I'll attach some screenshots.

Comment 2 kde 2022-01-12 22:06:21 UTC
I don't think this is a Konsole problem - it happens on other programs too.
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2022-01-13 20:11:34 UTC
Which other programs?
Comment 4 kde 2022-01-13 22:11:37 UTC
I've definitely seen the wrong cursor theme in Dolphin a few times.
Not sure about Gtk programs...
Comment 5 kde 2022-01-15 18:47:41 UTC
Here's an example with Kate.
It might have something to do with KWin so I assigned it there.
