Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

In Lucid Alpha 1 testing.

Steps to reproduce:

 * Log in with the default user
 * Without closing the session, go to the Guest Session
 * Without closing the Guest Session, go to Switch User (the default user would appear as logged in) and select the default user
 * Without closing the session, again, go to Guest Session
 * Without closing the Guest Session, again, go to Switch User (the default user would appear as logged in) and select the default user. GDM crashes.

Apport (although I enabled it) didn't catch the crash. I will attach dmesg and syslog.

I can confirm this on a Dell Inspiron 1546.

Pressing Ctrl+Alt+F7 showed the unlock session menu, at which point gdm started working again, but crashed another time after switching from guest to user a number of times (~3 times).

Bryce, can you take a look, please?

Hi Ara, it looks like this crash is occuring in libpixman although it's unclear from the X trace what routines were being called. Are you still able to reproduce this issue on current Lucid? If so please collect a full backtrace after reproducing the issue - see http://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Backtracing for guidance. If not, then this bug can be closed. It sounds quite similar to another one I investigated a couple months ago that is now solved, but hard to say for certain.
