Yes that's a long way to go for the minor inconvenience I'm experiencing!

For me it was "Locate Pointer", but I want to understand the way wayland 
alters things I was doing in X11.

Most of the bugs on that page were raised in 2012 and appear to be resolved/fixed.  
Maybe there is not much work in this area at the moment.

Thanks for the info though.

Some open reports have recent comments, but the main point is the approach they chose.

As for "Locate Pointer", I found:

'With GNOME Shell 3.34, a big coordinated effort was put in filling the missing accessibility bits  when running a Wayland session, such as Locate Pointer, Click Assist, among others."

It was not obvious how to enable "Locate Pointer" (the previous location  of "locate-pointer" that could be set via dconf-editor or

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.mouse locate-pointer true
no longer exists).    "gnome-tweaks" is the new home of "Locate Pointer"
