Please note when I say "it looks like this problem" I'm talking about the original problem that started this thread ("looping back to the login screen"), not your issue which, by your own description, is "a totally different problem".

It's confusing to try to discuss different problems on a single thread; it would be better to create different threads for different problems... they don't cost anything!

Default displaylink-debian

Give this a try:
https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian

...note that I was unable to get this working with the nvidia proprietary drivers. I had to use the nouveau drivers

Default Solution on github worked for me...

The solution on https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian worked for me with ubuntu 18.04 upgraded from 16.04. it finds the HDMI monitor attached to the USB as a generic monitor and not LG, but it displays good the images.
The mouse pointer also flickers sometimes but it's not annoying.

Default displaylink-debian

Same problem
I tried https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian, but after rebooting the X crashed and comes back to login again. Then I need to login in 'Ubuntu with wayland' and uninstall display-link then reboot.

Thank you madscientist. I had the same issue (I have ASUS MB169B+ as second monitor):
1. Mouse cursor artifacts on GTK menu bars.
2. After rebooting laptop with connected usb cable the monitor is not connected.
But now both problem are solved.

Default Workaround (works on ubuntu 16.04)

I'm still in Ubuntu 16.04, and have the same issue on mine Lenovo Ideapad 720S with Nvidia 1050 on board.

I found the workaround is to log-out and log-in again once OS is started.

BTW. tried 3 lates versions of driver and the issue persists.

I published this video with the issue: Display Link issue with cursor
