Fix graphics glitches upon resume with Nvidia GPU on Ubuntu

This problem was fixed by Nvidia driver ≥ 384


Ubuntu 16.04 with Nvidia driver version 375 may experience rainbow banding effects where shadows are cast.

Workaround A

setsid compiz --replace

This does not require sudo.

Workaround B

I got tired of having to keep doing the workaround above, so I temporarily reverted back to Nvidia driver 340. Alternatively, Nouveau also works OK.
