I've a feeling this is a bug in the X server itself, caused by a fix to
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20334 (Mouse shouldn't move
into area outside the monitors).

May I ask to whoever is affected by the same bug to "subscribe" to the
bug report?
"Subscribing" to a bug report is important to allow the maintainers to
assess the "importance" of a bug.
A bug affecting only me and my machine is likely less important than one
affecting me and some other users on different setups.

If you're affected by a bug already reported on Launchpad, like mine for
panning, and want to "subscribe" to its report, you can do so:

1) Use your Launchpad account and log into https://launchpad.net/

If you don't have one already, you can get it at https://launchpad.net/
> "Get started" > "Creating an account" - cookies must be enabled in
your browser. Follow the steps proposed, then use your new Launchpad
account and log into https://launchpad.net/

2) Look for a sentence beneath the title, subtitle and referrer, that
shows to me in green and is a variant of "This bug affects ...
person(s). Does this bug affect you?".
Click on it to tell Launchpad that the bug affects you, too.


That's it! :-)
