I believe it means, that there are actually two panels.

I have the same monitor. With Linux 4.17 and 4.18 at least GDM 3.28 and 3.30
are correctly displayed over the full screen. Could you please retest?

PS: The monitor, unfortunately, only gives problems with the free drivers
(Intel and AMDGPU) and firmware (UEFI of MSI B350M MORTAR (MS-7A37)). I believe
it’s the monitor firmware, but my colleagues say, they do *not* have any
problems with the proprietary Nvidia drivers and Microsoft Windows. So, it’s
either a bug in the free drivers, or the proprietary drivers work around it

Here are my bug reports for that. I do not know if these are specific drivers
bugs or in the generic DRM code.
