When this occurs could you try to move the cursor with left or right arrow?
Perhaps the cursor is there but it's not displayed.
Could you also remember us the Amaya version you're using?

Yes, we keep user configurations when the user changes his Amaya version.

I don't think that strange behaviour comes from user configurations as this is 
considered by the application. I guess it comes from files that should change 
and are not overwritten by the install.
