Wow, looking at the stack trace it seems that it fails trying to play a short 'ding' when the calibration has been completed. Epic fail :-)

The problem seem to be fixed upstream:

A patch is needed?

Calibration seems to be totally broken in 16.10 without it.

This is an unsupported release now. Please think to install the next LTS 'Bionic 18.04'
