Bug Description

Hi, I run Ubuntu 20.04 (Gnome Shell) development version.

Since I made the updates on 5th March, I have no more mouse cursor visible, on the login screen nor on the desktop session.

Mouse is OK, as if I move it I can see some items / buttons highlighted, and if I click the mouse, it works well. I tried Yaru and DMZ Black themes, no cursor, it's completely invisible.

I started several times, always no cursor. But if I switch to the Xorg (X11) session, mouse cursor is well back and visible.

My graphic card :

I'm not sure it is exactly the same bug, but some users have a similar problem on Fedora 32, so it might be an upstream problem :
