Bug with brush jumping to 0,0 if using a mouse and smoothing is at 0%

When using a mouse to paint, there is a jump to 0,0 (screen, not document) when I release the mouse button. This leaves a line on the document. This only happens with a mouse when the smoothing is at zero percent.
I do not see the problem with a pen/tablet, OR when smoothing is > 0%

The clone and smudge tools do not have a smoothing setting so they show the problem all of the time with the mouse (but not with a pen).

Desktop PC - AMD processor with old Graphics card. Acceleration on or off makes no difference.
Windows 10 (1909). Photoshop CC 21.1.0 (tested on PS CC 20.0.8 on same PC - no problems found)
Tablet = XP-PEN G640S .... I have replicated the problem with the tablet removed (but the drivers were still loaded)

This is a bug in CC 21.10 and there is a lengthy thread of discussion about it already on this forum. The temporary fix is to roll back to version 21.03 and block auto updates until Adobe gets it fixed.  If you need info on rolling back, look for that same thread, and scroll down through postings....

Thanks Dave.
I did do a search but failed to find anything.
I will try to work around it for now.

Did you see the added line on my reply? I edited it in possibly about the same time as you saw my comments, so it might have not been there when you read my prior-to-edit comment. That thread, though VERY lengthy, has the "how to" instructions to roll back. Going back to 21.03 for now is the only fix.
