I think this is not reproducible as it happens as a graphical lockup, but seems the machine goes into Suspend and I could wake the machine up by pressing the Power button. Just wonder how this could be happened.

For me is reproducibile, if I close the lid of the pc and reopen it before it suspends than reclose it and reopen it to wake the pc this error comes out.

I think this bug probably related with sleeping. I closed my laptop, it slept. When I opened it, the error occurred and something became strange, e.g., all icons in file browser (nautilus) were lost, they looked just all same.
