I was thinking of these changes in Stretch:

 * For many Intel graphics chipsets, the Stretch X server will use the
   modeset driver instead of the intel driver. The modeset driver may
   require non-free firmware (firmware-misc-nonfree) to activate features,
   even on systems which did not use this firmware under Jessie.

 * For some older graphics chipsets, support has been relegated to
   "legacy drivers", which require the old setuid X server to run. Install
   xserver-xorg-legacy if you require one of these drivers.

Text from <https://wiki.debian.org/NewInStretch>.  This may have nothing
to do with your issue.  It's just the first thing I could think of that
could possibly be related.
