In the Known Issues there was a comment about the Performance setting possibly causing display glitches on some systems, esp. some older systems. If that happens the advice is to set the display options to Good performance and compatibility.

You could try this and see if that helps.

Yes, and it was not only full screen cursor, it was also scrolling itself.
Maybe related to the first action was to create a copy of the Arch Workspace and use it.

I did a restart. I can Zoom now again ...
Will try crosshair cursor later. If nothing helps I will go done in GPU settings.

I had to change the display setting from Best performance to good performance but compatible.

Even drawing two lines that connect at the endpoint (and nothing else in the drawing) and then select both lines and move both joining endpoints gives an incorrect display. It seems as if nothing has changed but when selecting one of the lines you can see the new position in some transparent way.

When setting the display to Good performance then it suddenly shows what it should be.

Surely a GTX-960 video card with 4GB of RAM should be plenty for this, so it looks to me there is some display bug somewhere with the new graphics engine.

I've had a few glitches similar to that in this build as well, I agree that it is most likely the new VGM implementation. If anyone gets ANYTHING that can be reproduced, please do file that as a bug in Troubleshooting with the steps needed to reproduce as well as with your dxdiag/system profile:

I don't do much work in VW 2017, but after that first restart of VW it still runs without problems
since then - without decreasing any OpenGL setting.

Just filed a bug report. The file was uploaded separately from the bug report, will this automatically get linked or should I put in some reference in the file upload (did in a very general way) that I mention in both, e.g. a date and number code (20160915-01) or something like that for when you file more than one bug on a given day?

That SHOULD be fine, but if you get any weird feedback via email please let me know and I'll get it cleaned up. No worries.
