Bug Description

xenial + stable-phone-overlay, unity8 desktop
best to watch the videos

both videos happen to show browser, but saw similar issues when mousing over hexchat

and one more video
targeting seems off, wondering if this is due to the windows being non-full screen

Unity8's cursor switching is still undergoing work (not yet landed) --> bug 1447839

If that doesn't fix it then judging by the videos Unity8 might be failing to position the cursor according to its hotspot. The cursor's position is just a point, which is the coordinate of the hotspot. And the hotspot changes location between different cursors. So you need to shift the cursor image around to ensure the hotspot is what's at the cursor coordinates -- not just position one corner of the bitmap.
