Unfortunately, this is hard to debug since the webapps packages are in a PPA and the Apport retracer won't retrace PPA packages.

If this crash happens again, please follow the steps at in order to generate a stacktrace which you can attach to this report as it would help us in understanding this issue. I'm marking this Incomplete until then, and deleting the CoreDump for privacy reasons.

My unity menu is constantly crashing and making my entire system slow. I usually crashes 4 times with various errors right after I boot up my machine. I'm constantly closing this error popup message. Its possible that I installed too many lens PPAs and I just need to purge them. Is there an easy way to reset unity back to the default lenses?

i my case this bug ocurred when i running some app and running a app with the wine, I know who wine and this ppa haven't relationship but this ocurred.

In my case I was making comments in Flickr, when the crash report appeared. I have no idea why.
