Hi Michiel,
Cc’ing the support mailing list to see if anyone else has such a problem.
I suspect that this has to do with something at the system level, perhaps some sort of extension that you have installed.
I do not reproduce this behavior on a new touchbar-MBP with the latest version of macOS.
Perhaps you can try running a nightly build from the website.

When I move the cursor down, the menu flashes and the cursor jumps back to the top line. So I seem completely stuck, but when I move the cursor _very fast_ to the opposite corner of the screen this behaviour stops and I can use the cursor again.
