Public bug reported: I got a new Dell XPS 9370 and upgraded it to 17.10, the included kernel(4.13.0-38-generic) seems to be working except for some short temporary hangs(1-3 secs) ones in a while under wayland.
Therefore I tried upgrading the kernel to a newer version to see if it fixed the issue: 4.15.0-13-generic (from 18.04) 4.16.1-041601-generic (from mainline), bug report on this kernel. For both kernels gdm will startup without issue and then after 5-10 seconds the UI will hang and keyboard/mouse will become unresponsive. I installed an OpenSSH server and grabbed this bug report from there.
