Duplicate bug 981355 appeared only once after installing 'gnome-panel', 'indicator-applet',& 'indicator-applet-session', then logging out, choosing classic (no effects) and initially logging into the classic DE. All subsequent boots have been error free. If it were not marked as a duplicate I'd be tempted to mark it invalid.

Hello! This bug is attached to an upload in the queue for precise-proposed. However, it does not contain the requisite fields for the SRU team to process the upload. Please add them per the process outlined here. To be more succinct, make sure the bug description lists these fields: "Impact, Dev Fix, Stable Fix, Regression Potential, Test case".


The upload will likely not be looked at by the SRU team until these fields are present.

Thank you!
