Bug Description

I have been using the daily build for quite a while now and I like to get the recent updates as soon as they are available.
Problem is whenever I run "sudo apt-get update" in the terminal, the update manager is launched and during this time, it looks like gala crashes for a second and restarts.
This doesn't happen if there is no update available.
