Mouse cursor offset from "point of action"??

(observed with MATLAB 2016b, on MAC OS)
I have a script that produces a GUI. Until last week I have not ever seen this problem, but now it happens every time I run the GUI.
To interact with the GUI I have to place the mouse cursor just a few centimeters above the point I'm supposed to click. If I move the window, the problem disappears => the mouse cursor corresponds to what I should click.
This happens with an attached screen to the laptop, but also just with the laptop.
While I can come around by moving the window, this is highly frustrating.
Any clues?

This is a problem of the Macs (not of Matlab), which occurred repeatedly since 2012. Some users had success with changing the screen resolution.

You want me to google this for you? Hm.
... Well, I don't think this is useful.
It would be nice if it is a Matlab related problem. Then asking TMW for a workaround would be an option. I did not found something in the bug reports, but knowing the OS-X and Matlab version might be useful for further investigations.
Does the problem happen, when you run OS-X with one monitor also? Did changing the resoluion help?
I see, that this answer does not solve your problem. Perhaps it is better than silence, because you know, that at least for one other person this problem is not trivial to solve also. ;-)
