Thank you for your reply Colin!

My versions:

xserver-xorg                                         1:7.7+13ubuntu3
xserver-xorg-core                                    2:1.18.1-1ubuntu4

I don't think that this is a configuration problem, because it happens on
two different laptops, fresh installation on both, one Macbook Pro, and
another Samsung, both Intel video boards...

But sure, I can try LiveDVD session for a while, I'll do it tomorrow...

I just started using GNOME+Wayland, to be honest, I'm not 100% sure if it
solved the problem, I'll keep using it for a week, to make sure.

I'll try Chromium too!

I'm also curious to see Unity 7 with XMIR... But it is not working...

Thank you for clarifying to me, the different "XOrg versions"...
