Screen freezes during scrolling

I'm using a fresh install of Xubuntu 17.04 which comes bundled with Libreoffice 5.3.1.2.

Whenever I scroll at a reasonably fast pace (such as skipping a page in Writer, or more than 100 lines in one go in Calc), the whole window completely freezes until I stop scrolling, then it redraws. It makes things unusable.

I'm using a Nvidia binary driver version 381.22. I've played with the hardware acceleration settings but nothing makes a difference. I'm using an unusual kernel due to the recent CPU (4.11.0-4-generic #9~lp1671360).

PC specs: AMD Ryzen 1700X processor, Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card, 16 GB memory.

Any good ideas?
