Should note that this is actually in 12.10, not 12.04 as reported. Also, the 'Display' section of Control Centre also does nothing at the moment.

Another issue is that when I try to close the Control Centre, it just restarts itself. Over and over again, until it crashed when I tried to select 'Colour'.

I've just had the same set as keithclark on 12.10; although it does look like the original reporter was on pre-12.04

the bug is years old without activity nor new report and the code changed quite a lot since, closing, feel free to register new bugs if you have issues in newer versions though
