Downgrading gnome-shell (and gnome-shell-common) does not help.
However, downgrading libmutter0i, mutter-common, and mutter does the
trick. Note that I also updated libwacom2 to 0.22-1, as specified in
bug 838047. On its own, that did not do the trick, but when I
downgraded the various mutter packages, the problem went away.
