Bug Description

I had a problem for a while now, where in the game Dead Island Riptide Definitive Edition sometimes my mouse clicks are ignored.
When I move the view direction with the mouse a bit, its working again. It got pretty annoying as this issues occurred of course mostly in tense situations.
Now we started to play Insurgency and this game has the same issue. I can't left or right click in some situations.

These two are the only games where I realized this so far. Games like Left 4 Dead 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Counter-Strike: Source and many others don't have this issue.

I figured out that this happens, when the desktop cursor is at the most left or right screen edge. Even on the desktop I couldn't left or right-click, when the mouse is completely at the screen edge.

I realized today, that this one "dead" pixel line is there only when the desktop cube has rotation enabled. When I disable the rotation or use the desktop wall, the issue is gone. I have no problems ingame then and can also left or right-click on the desktop edges.
