tested the patch in dolphin viewer 3.2.0.22107. works as expected, no negative sideeffects that I can see.

If the cursor would be set at each level, it would cause a flicker in case the different controls set a different cursor. This change actually resembles the algorithm used prior the start of the flickering.

The general call to LLPanel::handleHover() was changed to be only called if the tooltip itself does not set the cursor itself. Logging the calls to LLWindowWin32::setCursor() revealed that if the "i"-button on a hovertop is hovered with the cursor said method is called twice with different cursors alternatively. Checking the call stack further revealed that one call is coming from LLToolTip::handleHover() and the other one from LLButton::handleHover(). Latter gets invoked if LLPanel::handleHover() is called. Since nothing is really done here except setting the cursor to UI_CURSOR_ARROW only ti get then set to UI_CURSOR_HAND if LLPanel::handleHover() returns, it doesn't make sense to do invoke that method unless the cursor is not changed in the tooltip itself. So LLPanel::handleHover() is only invoked if the tooltip does not set the cursor itself, so that child controls should take care.
