  GNOME Shell disabling wrong screen when docking laptop

Status in GNOME Shell:
  Fix Released
Status in gnome-shell package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  I often switch between working with a docking station, closed laptop
  and an external monitor, and an open laptop without docking station or
  monitor.  I noticed since updating to 17.10 that GNOME Shell would not
  switch correctly from the setup where the laptop was being used open
  without a docking station to the other.  When I opened the laptop in
  the docking station the external monitor would come on, and when I
  closed the laptop it went off again.  I manually switched the primary
  screen to be the external one and that solved it for now, so I assume
  that GNOME Shell was disabling the external screen instead of the
  internal one (it is a bit hard to see, and I have not yet tried ssh-
  ing in).
