XPS13 9360 cursor jumps while typing

This question is not answered

My XPS13 works pretty much flawlessly except for one rather annoying issue: Often while typing the cursor will jump to another location. As far as I can tell this happens in many different applications - Thunderbird Mail, various text editors and so on. It can happen several times even with a short section of text.

Has anyone else experienced this issue and if so is there a fix? I am a developer and have installed Ubuntu 16.10 over the Windows installation the machine came with. Clearly having my cursor change location without warning while typing is a frustration to say the least..

I see a solution has been found to the trackpad cursor jump issue (by blacklisting a driver). Might a similar cause be giving rise to this problem?

Thanks in advance.
