Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Release: 16.04


Mostly on boot, all applications which are opened do not have the typical borders which can be grabbed, no minimize, maximize or close icons and are not responsive to any Menu selections. All packages which are opened exhibit this behavior and can not be closed. Reboot is required to fix and almost always works. Today the behavior was normal on boot and one or two applications were opened and used typically, but upon trying to reopen one of the already used applications, the no border, no response behavior returned. An identical bug was reported by another user and confirmed by me but it applies to a Netbook remix package.

This issue is becoming more than a nuisance. On 03/14/18 no less than 6 reboots were required to eliminate separate episodes of the behavior. Most occur at the initial opening of any application, however the issue is now manifested after using an application successfully and upon opening a different application. It is not indicated by any one particular application. Rarely happens more than 5 minutes after a system start.
