Interesting.  This problem definitely started for me quite recently.
Specifically, it started when xfce4-session 4.12.1-4 hit testing [1],
which introduced the recommendation on light-locker [2].

I am running Intel integrated graphics, so that's a commonality.
However, I don't have logout and then back in again.  The disappearing
pointer happens consistently every time I unlock my machine.  To resolve
it, I hit Ctrl-Alt-F1 to switch to a console and then Alt-F7 to get back
into X, and the pointer is visible again.

BTW, is the referenced bug correct?  I get an HTTP 500 when I try to
access that bug via this URL [3].

Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide to
help isolate the issue.
