I have the exact same issue. It's due to the use of the Dell 5k display. Has anyone found a workaround?

I found a workaround on the Apple Community forum. Just unplug one of the mini-display connectors and plug it back in. Should work.

Update 10.12.2 - Still not resolved. Which means extremely low change of ever being fixed.

Same issue for me. Though I finally got this display working and very sad to see this issue. Seems to be affecting non hackintosh as well so hopefully we'll see a resolution.

Just wanted to push this thread up once again in hope anyone yet found a solution. It's really awful to still see these issues after two minor version releases of the OS and some gfx drivers updates.

The other day I had to do with screen recording and funnily noticed that the issue is totally not noticable in the recording though it was there while recording. At least a little bit of luck so I can use these recordings and don't have to throw them away.

Anyways. Using the Hack for anything precision is hard. 3D CAD, 2D Design - not really fun using both with this weird mouse pointer behaviour.

I'm not 100% sure but I noticed that the issue disappears if I sleep my display and I wake it again. It seems more reliable than a power cycle.

There are several ways to "reset" the pointer, but it can glitch out again at any point. Its not stable for any reasonable amount of time. IE it can happen in 2 seconds even after reset. Agreed its very difficult to do any precision work, heck its even hard to resize a window with the cursor issue.

Unfortunately as we know, Apple doesn't seem to give too much considerations to the professional users and artists. If it was in IOS it would be fixed tomorrow.

The fact that it occurs at the barrier of the MST screens, and the fact that the mouse cursor blends right at the junction seems like it COULD be a driver issue. Is everyone running a Nvida GFX card with this issue or has somone experienced this issue with like Intel Native graphics too? Though...... its sierra only and not in el capitan so... still seems like Apple's fault.
