Bug#284021: kde: resolution resize from 1280x1024 causes pointer/clickpoint offset

Package: kde
Version: 5:42
Severity: normal

When changing the display resolution in the KDE control center, then
logging off and logging back on, the mouse cursor ends up offset from
the actual point that clicks occur on.

So far, I can only duplicate this on my machine when X is set to
1280x1024 in the XF86Config-4 file (24bit color). If I change the
resolution to 1024x768 using the KDE control panel, things seem to work

After logging off and logging back on again, and working for a few
moments (the first few clicks are fine); the cursor seems to become
offset from the actual point where clicks take effect. Cursor shape
changes (for resizing windows, clicking on icons, etc) take effect as
per the actual point of mouse focus (so you can see where your pointer
actually is, by the way it changes shape when traversing window borders,

The direction of offset is not consistent. One time the click point was
about 200 pixels above the cursor graphic; another time it was offset
roughly the same distance to the left from the cursor graphic. 

The cursor graphic will not traverse any closer to the edge of the
display, than the actual click point does. (so the cursor appears to hit
an invisible wall when the click point gets to the edge of the screen).

I do not know of a way to test this without KDE (the command-line
resolution changer I know of, needs to be manually re-run every time..
and the problem appears only after logoff and logon in KDE).
