Synergy has been giving me issues recently, but this one seems to have come from out of nowhere. Running server 1.8.5 on Win10 laptop with 2 external displays, and client on Ubuntu 16, also a laptop with 2 external displays.


I run these two laptops closed, and use only the external displays.


Today, I open up the laptop in order to temporarily use the laptop display, and synergy breaks.


Now, when I move from Win10, the mouse seems to go over, then quickly move up to the top right corner of the Ubuntu screen, then disappear. I can not use the mouse at all on Ubuntu, nor can I bring it back to the Windows machine.

This is what I see in the log on the server before having to stop the client in order to get control back.
