I have tried the workaround mentioned by Bernd about changing the
compositor from OpenGL to XRender and during almost a month of testing
with that configuration I have not had the problem again.

I would like to point out that I made this change without removing the
configuration in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf that I
mentioned in a previous message. Maybe I would have to remove this
configuration to check if the solution is due to the combination of the
configuration in that file with the use of XRender or if only using
XRender is enough.

I will also try the solution you suggested, purging the package
xserver-xorg-video-intel and renaming 20-intel.conf.

Thank you all for your interest. Much appreciated.

Kind regards,
