  Super + p does not work as expected, it's defective

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have 3 monitors (2 landscape and 1 portrait), I normally need to
  change between my monitors due to my setup. If I want to play a game,
  I typically switch to a single monitor (Built-in) then I can switch
  back to Join and everything goes back to normal. That is what I would
  expect but that is NOT what happens.

  When using super+p there are 4 options:

  - Mirror
  - Join
  - External
  - Built-in

  The first two options work correctly, but the 3rd and 4th options do

  External and Built-in do the exact same thing: they simply shift my monitors 
around, lose all settings (reset everything). So all 3 monitors are still in 
use but settings are cleared (orientation, resolution, and frequency are 
reset). I have to then open up the settings to change it all back. When I go 
back to Join, I would expect the settings to return to normal. They do not. 
Super + P simply wipes out monitor settings in my case.

  I am using:
  - Ubuntu 4.15.0-47.50-generic 4.15.18
  - GeForce GTX 1080/PCIe/SSE2
  - I have attached: lspci-vnvn.log

  Description:  Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS
  Release:      18.04

  With nvidia-driver-418 from: ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa

  $ apt-cache policy nvidia-driver-418

  I am not sure if this is actually necessary because I don't think this
  has to do with the graphics card.

  I am not sure what other information you will need for this report. I
  can provide more data upon request.
