Bug Description


Unity could crash after having confirmed the password in the lockscreen.
The Ubuntu Error Tracker has been receiving reports about a problem regarding compiz. This problem was most recently seen with version 1:, the problem page at https://errors.ubuntu.com/problem/c174b8505675ac2a0070c945005acdf7cf7047a8 contains more details.

[Test case]

Just lock and unlock the unity screen
Unity should not crash on password confirmation

There's not a clear scenario where this crash could happen, though.

[Regression potential]

None, there are just some safe null-checks in code.
