Thanks for taking your time to report this issue and help making Ubuntu better.

Based on the stack trace in the screen shot it looks like this particular bug has already been reported as bug 1405951 (by me actually), so I'm marking it as a duplicate. Please look at the other bug report to see if there is any missing information that you can provide, or to see if there is a workaround for the bug. Additionally, any further discussion regarding the bug should occur in the other report. Feel free to continue to report any other bugs you may find.

PS. If there's a stack trace or error message in the terminal, please copy and paste the text into the bug report. This makes it easier to read and also makes the error message searchable for others which run into the same issue. Screen shots are still great to display visual bugs or point out details.
