Kubuntu Bionic: graphical slowdown after installing recent updates

The issue is things building in -proposed picking up a dependency on
libegl1 from libglvnd etc, but the version in -release is too old and
acceleration breaks when it migrates to -release. Ideally such things
should not migrate if they break things, but some oddities in this
mesa/libglvnd transition mean that is not being prevented.

Hopefully as soon as mesa and newer libglvnd migrate this will resolve
itself.

Don't have an ETA for that, but the ubuntu developers are aware and
working on it
