BTW, most likely the desktop was confused by the strange monitor layout
(internal display having a different and even bigger resolution than the
external one), made some unlucky/wrong assumptions and failed completely
the end.

I totally agree that the size got missunderstood by gnome or whatever piece
of software made that assumption about size. I don't know how to change
that, nor did I choose this size. Clearly, as correctly assumed by you, the
external monitor should be larger than the internal display, rather than
smaller as defined by default. By the way, am I the only one having this
problem? Does no one else use an external, second monitor?

I can confirm exactly the same issue. Thinkpad X1 4th gen Skylake 520
graphics. Updated Tumbleweed. Plasma 5.10.3, Kernel 4.11.8. The problems
started for me after June 16-ish. I have a Thinkvision display attached with
a resolution of 1920x1200 dpi with a resolution on the hdpi laptop screen of
2560x1440. This has never (ever) caused any problem in the past. I have
attached this laptop to numerous external displays and projectors of
different resolution.



Thanks for sharing, good to hear that I'm not the only one not able to use an
external monitor :-)
