Photoshop CC 2019: Brush tip (cursor) disappearing

After the latest Photoshop CC update, my brush cursor defaults to crosshairs when using any of the "painting" tools - brush, eraser, clone, etc. 

Yes, I am fully aware of Caps Lock.
Yes, I have confirmed that Normal Brush tip is selected under Preferences >> Cursors.

No matter what, the moment I move the cursor, the normal brush tip switches to crosshairs. I can visibly see the change occur.

What OS/version? It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Launch Photoshop, and select Help > System Info... and copy/paste the text in a reply.

Has a solution been found for this issue yet? I'm having the exact same problem and it's really throwing off my work. It's not just the cursor for the brush tool, its for all the other tools that have cursors as well. When I'm resizing I can see the circle, but the second I move the mouse it disappears
