Bug Description

I was just trying to alt-tab between Libreoffice Calc and Libreoffice Writer and not only was response time really slow, but it would tab to a document that wasn't the previous one I had used and after just a few uses of the alt-tab command something crashed.

I was opening a new document in LibreOffice Writer when the message reporting that "bamfdaemon crashed ..." popped up. Nothing seemed slow.

This "Alt-Tab" bug also affects 64-bit version.

32 version here; like with Luiz, it occured when I went fullscreen on youtube and saw it when I got out of fullscreen.

Full screen gimp, I believe.

In particular, when starting nautilus. natty beta1 x64

In my case it crashed when I switched to gedit and started pdflatex from there - don't know if it is in any way related to these two things or just caused by something running in the background.

Crashed again, this time I opened the "Save as JPEG"-Dialog of Gimp. Also last time Gimp was running in the background, or to be more precise, it was closing. Maybe something to do with multiple windows of one application opening and closing?

I can confirm this bug on my system as well.
Bug occurred while scrolling in Libreoffice Writer.
I am running Natty Beta 1 on an EEEpc 1005HA with all current updates.

I've got this bug today to. I was closing gimp, it closed but "bug report" window appeared and gimp is still in my unity board (not actually running). I'm adding screenshot of my situation.
P.S.: after I closed console window same "bug report" window appeared and unity is showing it running whet it is not.

I just got this crash when about to print an image in GIMP with an updated bamf (0.2.84-0ubuntu1).
Aport started gathering info, but I didn't report because it was the same report title than this one.
The launcher subsequently filed with an infinite number of Aport icons and everything froze for a while. Gimp and the print dialog just disappeared.
