unity_support_test was rewritten from scratch in nux 0.9.38, so your crash should not exists anymore. Can you reproduce it with the latest packages in natty?

I'm not able to test it at the moment, as I can no longer get unity nor compiz to work on this netbook.

I just did a fresh re-install of 11.04 and completed all updates. The problem does appear to be resolved.

Omer Akram (om26er) wrote :

given the fact that unity_support_test was re-written and also a confirmation for the issue not happening anymore, I am closing this bug as fixed, if someone still faces this same issue please let us know or even report a new crash so that we actually know the new issue is the same as this one.

It seems that installing fglrx trigger the bug. While I don't have fglrx all work ok; after the installation and reboot apport shows the bug report. I unistalled fglrx and everything runs normal.
