Fedora 28 - Kernel 4.17.7 - Display immediately goes into powersave logging into gnome

I have 3 displays, one in Landscape configuration, the other two in "Portrait Right" configuration on either side of it.

This combination has worked well until just recently, after rebooting following a kernel upgrade to 4.17.7. The Gnome login screen appeared as normal on all three displays, but immediately after a successful log in the two displays configured "Portrait Right" immediately turn themselves off (go into power saving mode).

Playing around with the settings I discovered that configuring all three monitors to "Landscape" works correctly.

This is new behavior with 4.17.7.

Any ideas how to resolve this?

For any who encounter this thread later, it turns out this is a known bug in mutter, not kernel 4.17.7. Downgrading to mutter 3.28.1-1.fc28 restored the functionality for now. See for the details:
