Bug Description

Just went through a nightmare scenario of the unity login screen looping, after I reset the machine when it woke from suspend in a extra extra slow state. Eventually I tried a solution on askUbuntu that worked, and first thing I got up on reaccessing the desktop, was this problem report.
