Using arandr/xrandr results in shifted/cropped desktop

I have Lithium installed on a Dell Latitude E7450 with Intel graphics and FHD (1920×1080) screen. I have an external monitor with a 2560×1440 resolution.

When I try and use the external monitor, either arranging them using arandr, or using an xrandr command, the desktop appears shifted about a third of the way upwards, is not extended to cover the whole of the screen, and the mouse cursor is not displayed where the system thinks it is (the system's sense of where the cursor is is shifte up by the same amount the desktop is). You can see it in the following photo (note the partially visible file manager window): YRRULiL.png
This result was obtained running the command:

xrandr --output HDMI-1 --auto --primary --output eDP-1 --off

If I try and use both internal and external displays, I have a similarly shifted output on the internal display as well, and no output on the external display except the mouse pointer.

Funnily enough, when the screen locks, the lock screen with the password prompt shows correctly on the external monitor.

Any constructive ideas?
