If it's inside GTK, then why are only dired buffers affected? For
instance, a buffer containing a Java file or something else is not affected.

So I guess emacs is calling a certain gtk function when a dired buffer
is active, that it does not call for other buffers. Which call could
that be? Initiative *must* come from somewhere inside emacs, or else
emacs-specific actions such as pressing C-x o would not be able to
trigger it.

Possibly also this is a call that emacs did not invoke on older
versions? (but here, it is just as well possible that Ubuntu 18.04's GTK
performs that call differently than Ubuntu 16.04's GTK)

ok :-)
