I am on amd64. Upgraded with "apt-get dist-upgrade". Synaptic running when notification came up. Here I am.

Cleaned up some things in synaptic and am installing stellarium through it right now. I do not have a clue what this is that crashed unless it has something to doe with that wonderfully unusable joke USC.

Every thing installed fine and runs.

This is just the same bug on another install of an upgrade from 8.04.4 to 10.04 on the same hardware.
