Bug#863257: gdm3: stretch - login box displayed off-screen

Package: gdm3
Version: 3.22.3-2
Severity: normal


After upgrading to stretch, I cannot see gdm3's login box, only the
background.  If I press enter and type my password, I'm logged in correctly.
So I think the login box is being displayed off-screen.

My system is a ThinkPad T450 in a dock.  The lid is closed, and two external
monitors are attached.  Under jessie, gdm3 displayed the login box on one of
the external displays.
