Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but this appears to be a "regular" (non-security) bug. I have unmarked it as a security issue since this bug does not show evidence of allowing attackers to cross privilege boundaries nor directly cause loss of data/privacy. Please feel free to report any other bugs you may find.

If the kernel pipe mismatch messages keep happening, please also file a bug against the linux kernel with "ubuntu-bug linux". That feels like a separate issue that probably needs to be addressed.
