I'd appreciate some advice on how much of a problem this represents. Trying to do some early testing on at 14.04 to 16.04 upgrade and can't tell how badly this has interfered with the upgrade, and whether it would invalidate my testing...
Also would appreciate any advice on a workaround if there is one.
Apols if this info is available somewhere else and I just haven't found it.
