This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-core-launcher - 1.0.25

ubuntu-core-launcher (1.0.25) xenial; urgency=medium

  * update cgroup handling for 16.04 (LP: #1564401):
    - debian/usr.bin.ubuntu-core-launcher:
      + allow creating cgroups with snap.*
      + allow ixr of 'tr'
      + remove access to /var/lib/apparmor/clicks/
    - update README to more fully explain the cgroups implementation
    - src/80-snappy-assign.rules: append an app-specific tag instead of
      adding a generic tag and snap-specific property
    - src/snappy-app-dev: convert the new tag to the directory name
    - src/main.c:
      + refactor and simplify control flow to query udev for device assignment
        instead of searching apparmor policy for a specific string
      + adjust udev query for app-specific tag
      + raise real_uid after fork() before calling /lib/udev/snappy-app-dev
        so non-root app launches work with the device cgroup

ubuntu-core-launcher (1.0.24) xenial; urgency=medium

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * ignore non-existing dirs when doing the overlay mount
  * add /lib32, /libx32 to the overlay mounts

  [ Jamie Strandboge ]
  * add back the use of /usr from the ubuntu-core snap instead of the host
    system (LP: #1570581)
  * implement @complain as a synonym for @unrestricted since snappy will use
    @complain to toggle developer mode. This allows snaps to work in developer
    mode while seccomp logging is being developed (LP: #1570578)
