I've got this bug while running the "test ubuntu" from the daily oneiric cd from 20.09.2011 on Pentium 4 3GHz IBM ThinkCentre

I've gotten this twice shortly after booting to the live DE with Ubuntu 20110921.2/oneiric-desktop-i386.

This hardware, specifically VIA P4M800 graphics chip, boots to Unity 2D so this may be limited to the 2D DE.

I'll try cross testing on my Intel box ASAP to see if that's correct.

This shows up with with my Intel i945 also ;^(

But I almost think it's a "false alarm". There are no obvious deficits if you just click on "close".

Maybe just a race with apport?

I'm not tech savvy enough to know.

Having now performed installations on both sets of hardware I can say this only occurs in the live DE. After installation I do not get this error.
