My contribution is no help in finding a solution, but I can confirm that 
this also happens with Impress under Zorin 12 (a Ubuntu derivative of 
16.04, which has a Gnome desktop). Problem seems intermittent and just 
about manageable at this stage by left-arrowing back one slide and then 
forwards again. This problem did not occur in versions of LibreOffice 
prior to as far as I can tell.
