I installed a fresh Ubuntu on a VM, and the problem did go away. I'm
sorry for misleading you. I found out that the problem goes away if I
disable the third-party GSConnect extension (due to be included in the
next Ubuntu, https://github.com/andyholmes/gnome-shell-extension-

reboot, and the problem is gone (Alt+F2 & r doesn't work). Enable it
again, or even open the preferences, and the problem appears again.
