Bug Description

Hollywood always crashes (eventually) in 16.04, because the splits change sizes, and eventually, one of them will fail to run in a split. And when any one exits, all of hollywood exits. This is completely fixed in the latest upstream release 1.8, which is already in Yakkety. It should be SRU'd back to Xenial.

== SRU ==

Hollywood crashes a lot in Xenial, mainly from moving the splits around. Eventually, one won't be able to fit, and will close everything.

Run 'hollywood' a couple of times on 16.04, and notice that it only runs for a few seconds. Upgrade to the new version, and try again, and it should stay open pretty much indefinitely.

This package is completely and totally extraneous. Regressions are negligible.
