Bug Description

I have a dual monitor setup. Sometimes, when I log back in from the lock screen (I mean the session is already running), one of the screens does something quite strange. When I try maximise a window, it only uses a small part of the screen's width, as you can see here
I also can't drag the right border of a window to make it bigger. The left border works fine. The only solution I've found is to go to system settings-> displays, disable one of the monitors, and then enabling it again. Logging out and back in, doesn't help.
I suppose it is an xorg related bug, sorry if it's not.


1) Description: Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS
Release: 16.04

2) xorg:
  Installed: 1:7.7+13ubuntu3
  Candidate: 1:7.7+13ubuntu3
  Version table:
 *** 1:7.7+13ubuntu3 500
        500 xenial/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3) Expected: window is maximised normally.

4) What happens: It only uses a portion of the width.

Here's the screenshot again, in case the other one fails.
