This is related to Debian Bug #725859, for which I have forwarded a patch. I have attached it here as well, in case you would like to release a fix before Debian does.

The attachment "fix_crash_on_startup.patch" seems to be a patch. If it isn't, please remove the "patch" flag from the attachment, remove the "patch" tag, and if you are a member of the ~ubuntu-reviewers, unsubscribe the team.

Is there something we can do on our devices to fix this until there is a general fix? Thanks!
