After a bit of investigation, the problem doesn't occur under X11 when
using libinput instead of synaptics/evdev as the input driver -
removing xserver-xorg-input-synaptics and xserver-xorg-input-evdev,
installing xserver-xorg-input-libinput and restarting my X session
Since using evdev/synaptics worked fine under Wiley with Mutter 3.18,
I'm not sure if the problem is with changes to xorg/evdev/synaptics in
Xenial or a bug in Mutter 3.19.
Any suggestions where I should report the bug?
