affects: compiz (Ubuntu) → unity (Ubuntu)

Unsetting the need retracing tag. The crash report is too old to be processed by Apport, we did not have the ability to process crashes for the ARM platform until now.

tags: removed: need-armhf-retrace

Sorry folks, but as part of the bug clean up ahead of 16.04 I'm marking this as invalid because it affects an Ubuntu release which is now unsupported. If you can still recreate this bug in a supported release please do open a new bug and we can triage it for consideration in the 16.04 development cycle.
