Bug Description

Xorg (xserver-xorg 1:7.7+1ubuntu8) crashed on an Ubuntu MATE (Utopic) amd64 system. Apport informed me of the crash when I logged in. I had just logged out and back in.

At the time I was using this system to verify the correct behavior of pam_env.so against another system on which it is not working. I had set unimportant environment variables (FOO and BAR) in ~/.pam_environment, changed them, and removed the file (which was otherwise empty). I did this across a few graphical sessions, all within a few minutes of one another.

I suspect that is not what triggered this crash but I'm not sure.

Recently I have some kernel messages which may or may not be related to whatever triggered this crash:
