That makes for some informative reading, and I tried to induce the
symptoms by replicating some of the alleged triggers cited by some
github users, but without success. I don't have the same setup as some
of them (i.e., no webcam, not running Mint, etc) so I couldn't try
everything mentioned, but I did poop around with the Display Settings
dialog and with VLC a bit.
So far I've been utterly unable to replicate the phenomenon. I suspect
that whatever it was has been silently fixed by some update in
mate-desktop-environment or perhaps a related package. If I observe it
again I will try to figure out how to replicate it.
