Many tools cause a diagonal stroke to appear

Since the 21.1 update, various tools seem to randomly get a stroke segment connecting back to one of the top corners of the monitor. This primarily happens when using my mouse, and when Smoothing for the Brush tool is set to 0%. I do not experience the bug when using my Intuos 1 stylus (with WinTab fix), or when Smoothing is set at least 1%. The bug still occurs with other tools such as the Lasso.

I just reloaded my older version of Photoshop  (2018-19) and found none of these artifacts.  Will wait until Adobe has fixes to update again.  I hope they are reading/listening to this!

Having same problem with burn/dodge tools and even cloning tool.  No solution so far been seen, but will try your thought of using smoothing setting.  Just started when downloaded latest update!
