/usr/share/doc/xserver-xorg-core/NEWS.Debian.gz reads:

xorg-server (2:1.18.3-2) unstable; urgency=medium

  X now defaults to using built-in modesetting video driver on Intel
  hardware which is "4th gen GMA" and newer, so roughly speaking on hardware
  from 2007 and up. If this triggers new bugs on your hw, please file them
  against the xserver.

  Continuing to use the -intel driver is possible by dropping the template
  xorg.conf to /etc/X11:

  # cp /usr/share/doc/xserver-xorg-video-intel/xorg.conf /etc/X11

So perhaps the modesetting video driver breaks things on your system.
Can you please try switching back to the -intel driver with 2:1.18.3-2
or newer?
