Cursor flickering in editor while playtesting if cursor.visible = false

Editor - Other


Reproduction steps:
1. Open user submitted project "Test Cursor Locking"
2. Add user script "ScreenLockCursor.cs" to any object in the scene
3. Start playing and press "p" on the keyboard. The cursor should be locked and become invisible
4. Press random buttons on the keyboard, the cursor will flicker in the middle of the game window
5. If that doesn't work try setting editor layout to "4 Split" and turning off "Maximize on Play", then repeat steps 3 - 4

1. This bug is only reproducible on Windows 7, we could not reproduce it on Windows 8.1
2. This bug only appears in editor, it does not affect a built game
3. Here is a video that shows the reproduction steps:

    Still a problem in 5.4. This is another in a series of supposedly fixed issues that I keep running in to.

    Still happens in 5.2.0f3 on Win7 when a moving object is selected. OnGUI duct tape locking helps though.

    This also still happens for me on Windows 7 using Unity 5.1.2f1. This is very annoying.

    They marked it as resolved in 5.1.0. I have 5.1.1f1 and it's still there.

    Do I have the right to be mildly annoyed that the unity team can make all these huge graphical upgrades, editor improvements, audio upgrades, etc, but they can't figure out how to make the cursor stop flickering on the screen for everyone using Windows 7?

    Please spend 2 hours of your dev team's time and hot patch this issue please...

    Same here, its pretty bad.

    I was able to get it to go away by removing wasd from the preset keys in the input manager... obviously this caused issues with the input.
    Please fix this.
