Bug Description

Opened Writer from the launcher. Splash displayed, progress bar filled, then splash disappeared and apport popped up.

Running on Virtualbox, and I was resizing my virtual monitor at the time. Given that this crash occurred in a Xinerama-related function, this seems suspicious. May actually be a bug in the VirtualBox guest additions?
