Full screen games revealing desktop pixels along bottom and right edges of screen in Cinnamon on Mint 19.2

So far I've confirmed this problem happens with both the closed source NVIDIA driver as well as open source Mesa for AMD on completely different computers. Problem started after upgrading to Mint 19.2. Anyone else seeing a line of pixels from the desktop background along the right and bottom edges, like the game window has been shifted slightly up and to the left? Some games I don't see the problem with. The problem also ended up going away in one session I was running, but I have no clue yet what I might have done to temporarily fix it. None of the new v-sync settings in 19.2's general settings fixes it.

The issue breaks game immersion and can be quite distracting.

It's been reported - https://github.com/linuxmint/muffin/issues/530

I get in occasionally as-well - Intel Integrated graphics.

Thanks! I'd post there but I cancelled my Github account due to the Microsoft acquisition.
