I suspect your recent request of me to run apport-collect 1766974 was an error and should have been directed at Michael Odumosu (michael5757) instead.
In any case, I have since the bug(s) freshly installed 18.04 LTS and have no bugs at all now. I am unable to replicate.

See my recent comment against the bug.
