Package: mate-desktop-environment
Version: 1.8.0+7
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When coming back from screensaver, my main monitor switches to black,
while my secondary screen (extended desktop) comes back on normally.
I've so far found no way of getting the screen back except for running
xrandr --output PROBLEM_SCREEN --auto.

Not sure what version started this, as I just switched back to Mate from
Cinnamon today.
