The pattern of corruption looks like a pixel format mixup or colour
channel overflow. So I would bet it's related to the 10-bit/8-bit colour
changes in Mesa and Mutter...

I can't reproduce it on my desktop (Haswell, 10-bit monitor).
I can reproduce it on two laptops (Kaby Lake, 8-bit panels).

Is the problem Ubuntu-specific? I've been wondering if our mesa
patch(es) in this area are still necessary (since mutter fixed their
side, didn't they?).
