Hi all,

I have verified the other two patches associated with 1.8.10-2ubuntu3. This is the third and final fix of 1.8.10-2ubuntu3 which is blocking the update being published on bionic-updates.

Has the error reports reduced with the 1.8.10-2ubuntu3 as expected? I can't access the link as "not a member of a group that is allowed to see the data from error reports". I have just requested access.

It's unfortunate there is no specific reproduction instructions for this bug that can be manually verified. Hopefully someone with access to the link above can confirm the fix has lowered the number of error reports (as suggested by the reporter of this bug), and then tag this issue and then change the tag from verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic.
