Bug Description

Honestly this may be coincident with other issues I'm having, but jic.

Ubuntu: 14.04 LTS
Kernel: 4.4.0-89

What was I doing: I installed snapd (which installed systemd) and then anbox. Rebooted and system would not start. ppa-purge'd gnome3-team/gnome3-staging and reinstalled gnome and it's still failing except with metacity. Got this after removing an old unused cairo-dock installation.

Almost certainly a non-issue.
