Interesting, I'm guessing you haven't found a fix/workaround?

Would also be interested in hearing whether others on the list
have had this issue. I upgraded another system to Stretch yesterday
and couldn't reproduce, so maybe it's been fixed, don't quite
understand why it persists on this particular laptop.

Maybe we could compare hardware notes:
     * Lenovo Thinkpad L412
     * i5 processor
     * Sandy-Bridge Graphics
