My tests today showed that the latest Slackware Linux kernel security 
upgrade 4.4.75 kernel is the culprit.

The upgrade manager on my Linux Mint 18 gives each package update a 
priority level, 1 being the highest and 5 the lowest. The manager then 
checks the upgrades it recommends installing. Since I installed Mint 
nearly a year ago, the kernel upgrades have always been rated 5 and 
never has the upgrade manager recommended that I install a kernel 
upgrade. It also warns that kernel regressions can cause bad things to 
happen. Since my computer is working fine, I have never clicked to 
upgrade my kernel.
