comment UEFI Ubuntu installation no longer boots after moving a partition
You're analysis was spot on. The solution was 1) converting MBR to GPT then 2) reinstalling GRUB. Just re-installing GRUB was insufficient on it's own. And yes, clobbering the Windows installation on this work machine was the first thing I did after getting it. Thanks ever so much for your help :)

Ah right yes, so the actual operations gparted would have done would be a move to the left and then grow etc.

Disabling vsync in Compiz Config is a must. This one is such a terrible gotcha.
