[Bug 1515921] Re: 2 mouse pointers when running gedit with gtk mir on Unity8


*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1517615 ***

After some investigation, this is due to lightdm hard coding an option
passed to unity-system-compositor to enable the hardware cursor.  Since
Unity 8 now provides its own cursor, this option is no longer needed.

I opened a new bug against lightm to specifically disable the "--enable-
hardware-cursor=true" option.  I think it's best to dup this bug to that
bug (bug #1517615).

Bug description:
  ubuntu 16.04 
  i get 2 mouse pointers when running gedit with gtk mir on Unity8. they also have diff sizes and positions. even after closing gedit i'm left with 2 mouse pointers. i don't need 2, one is enough. it gets really confusing using 2 mouse pointers at the same time, uh
