Synergy 1.8 OSX loses mouse pointer for ~20 seconds

1 post in this topic

Just updated to 1.8.2-Stable-36cd521 on both my Mac 10.11.6 (Server), and Win10 (anniversary update) (Client)

 

In the 2 hours since updating, twice now the cursor has just vanished completely on the Mac (Server).

 

When it happens this is shown in the log:

I'm not sure of a repo, but it seems like it happens when the mouse switches rapidly. Might be to do with a large amount of clipboard data too. Apologies, I can't be clearer.

Hi there — I saw this, too, and turned off Drag and Drop File Transfers. That seemed to have cleared the issue.
