Description of problem:
On different applications running in XWayland, including firefox and eclipse (started using GDK_BACKEND=x11) and some gtk2+python2 applications, the mouse cursor doesn't change any more when e.g. hovering on links. Sometimes it completely disappears. Sometimes you see a text cursor for all of the GUI, including buttons, links, …. Sometimes you see resize cursors until you click somewhere into your application's window.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The "mouse pointer doesn't change" part: reliably
The "mouse pointer disappears" part: not quite reliably
This issue doesn't affect pure Gtk3 applications running with wayland backend as e.g. gedit, nautilus, evolution. I could not reproduce this issue on a gnome+X session, only on Gnome+Wayland.
The followign patch Jonas sent to the xorg-devel mailing list for Xwayland might help here:

Jonas' patch menetioned in comment 1 has now been pushed upstream as commit 07941a5:
Maybe you can review the attached video on this comment:
The cursor seems to be stuck when changing shapes on Wayland GTK3 apps.
This issue will be fixed in the next xorg xserver release.

I think you mean it doesn't get changed when moving onto another window. I can see that and it looks like you are running into the same issue.
