Bug Description

I am running Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS with the 4.8.0-52-generic kernel. The computer is a MacBook Pro 10,1. I am using the proprietary Nvidia display driver 375.66. I have encountered a new bug multiple times today, that I have never seen before. I would guess this is an xorg problem, but nothing has been changed there to cause this bug to appear today.

Expected Behavior: Mouse pointer properly interacts with all open windows and UI buttons on both monitors.

Problem Behavior: Mouse works properly for interactions on monitor 1. Mouse pointer moves properly on monitor 2, but mouse buttons have no impact on anything when the pointer is on the second monitor. Windows functioning properly on display 1 fail to respond to mouse buttons when moved to display 2. When a window is partially displayed on both monitors, the mouse works properly for the part of the window shown on monitor 1, but does not work for the part of the window shown on monitor 2.

This behavior only began today, which is odd because the only software changes today were updates to iproute2:amd64 and libjasper1:amd64. This issue remains following a reboot, and impacts the second monitor for all workspaces. I had upgraded packages yesterday and had no problems then, just problems follwing the upgrade today.
