Re: [Gimp-user] [Gimp 2.8] Pencil Cursor doesn't move with mouse cursor

That is correct.  A recent update to libcairo (not GIMP per se) resulted in a cascading event scenario in 
GIMP (also Inkscape) when rulers are visible and the tablet pen is moved too quickly:
"...we were basically
    redrawing the ruler inside the mouse event handler, which is pure evil."

It has been patched in development versions, but in the meantime toggling image rulers off should be a usable

Are you using a graphics tablet? If so try turning off the display of the rulers
(De-select "View/Show Rulers")

I think I read somewhere that this has been addressed in a later version of GIMP
