Tested bionic-proposed with both original VM that exhibited the problem on upgrade and a separate VM used to test the work-around (uncommenting WaylandEnable=false in /etc/gdm3/custom.conf). Both VMs upgraded and ran successfully using https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed.

And the problem is indeed the kernel advertising DRM_CAP_TIMESTAMP_MONOTONIC but instead of using CLOCK_MONOTONIC it is really using CLOCK_REALTIME. This confirms kernel commit 37efe80ce85f is the fix, but it may well have some prerequisite commits we haven't fully worked out...

I am now able to reproduce and debug the problem. Indeed it is what I said in comment #31. The vmwgfx driver in this old kernel is telling lies. It says the next screen refresh is in 49 years from now. It should be within 16.6 milliseconds. ** Summary changed: - Login screen never appears on
