Public bug reported:

I've just reluctantly upgraded to 17.10 and am experiencing an annoying
bug where the display jolts/refreshes randomly once every 10/15 seconds
or so.

Specifically, the screen blacks out, appears for half a second upside-
down, then blacks out again before returning.

It corresponds very closely to the following errors found initially in
syslog:

otto@computer:~$ journalctl /usr/bin/gnome-shell -f -o cat

Window manager warning: Overwriting existing binding of keysym 73 with keysym 
73 (keycode 27).
