Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server
Is it fixed? No, not yet. Issue seems to be that calling the new Passthrough mode does not trigger a reinitialization like it should.

At any rate, there are 2 workarounds that work on my system:

1) set Kodi to run at something other than the system default of 60hz (might be 50hz in PAL regions). For example, setting it to 59.94 works.
2) in, turn the display output off and then on again, ie:

xrandr --output HDMI1 --off; xrandr --output HDMI1 --auto

I do not seem to need the "sleep 1" command as originally indicated.
