Bug Description

https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/issues/68

---

Frequently, but not always, the mouse cursor is invisible in the login screen. I can move it, as when passing over a button it lights up, but I can't see where the cursor is.

Once on the desktop, the problems are gone.

I am running Ubuntu 18.04 dev on a Dell XPS 9360 FHD.

I am going to remove your mention of the screen corruption because that's a separate issue -> bug 1753776.
