Bug Description

Today I upgraded from Ubuntu 2016.04.1 LTS with "sudo do-release-upgrade -d"
I also switch back from Gnome to Ubuntu's default desktop environment, which I had left about a year ago because of bugs.
Now Ubuntu seems to be working fine, but I received this error report out of nowhere.
