The Bug reporting software shows me that the bug that happens after every login is a duplicate of http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1701932 - but there is no bug on this address!

I also get this error message

Xorg.assert.failure:Xorg: ../../dix/privates.c:385: dixRegisterPrivateKey: Assertion ‘lglobal_keys[type].created‘ fails

But the error reporting software tells me that the bug is a duplicate of https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1629678 which also does not exist, but here it is a different one than told above.

BTW: Is there a way to catch the error report sent in. It is very tedious to retype what I can see when I inspect on what the error reporting software sends in.
