I also observe problems with a flickering mouse and a weird rectaangle
around my mouse, when I use three monitors, with one beeing rotated by
90 degrees. Sometimes this also occurs when I don't rotate the screen.
The fix above doesn't help me.

Ubuntu 17.10, Display link driver 4.1 and Nvidia 390 open source driver

  My issues is, after adding a 3rd monitor to Ubuntu 14.04, the mouse
  flickers (or blinks) when the cursor is on monitors one or two, but
  not 3.

  Monitor 1: 1440 x 900 - Laptop's Native Monitor
  Monitor 2: 1920 x 1080 - Laptop's HDMI Port's External Monitor
  Monitor 3: 1024 x 768 - SIIG USB 2.0 to VGA Pro Monitor

  Here's the video card that feeds my laptop's native monitor, monitor 2
  (hdmi).

  lspci | grep 'VGA\|Display'

Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
  00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset 
Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)

  The 3rd Monitor is powered through a Display Link certified SIIG USB
  2.0 to VGA Pro adapter (A2H1320X1374 - not sure what this number, but
  it is a sticker on back of the device):

  Additionally, unity-control-center crashes sometimes after I "Restore
  previous settings", after selecting a resolution too high. This
  freezed my laptop, requiring a hard reboot.
