Hi!
On the lightdm login screen, do you have multiple choices for the GNOME desktop in the top (or bottom) bar, like "GNOME" and "GNOME on Xorg"? If so, does the problem happen on all of them?

On GNOME 3.24, the default "GNOME" option uses Wayland instead of Xorg. I have heard that the login on GNOME with Wayland is troublesome with display managers other than GNOME's (gdm). If that is indeed the problem, using "GNOME on Xorg" could be a workaround.

I have no idea for now, sorry, especially with the new information you have brought. For now I am mainly confused...

Some further tests could be to try with another display manager, like gdm, to see if the issue is still there. It may help narrow down the source of the problem, if it lies with lightdm or elsewhere.
