[Original Report]
I was running several programs on unity desktop 5 on Ubuntu 12.04 (updated to 15.1.2012), also package installations.

There happends a automatically session logout , which I have not introduced, out of nothing.

I came back to the Ubuntu startslash for logging in automatically. A login in a unity session brings a new session on.

The gnome-system-monitor is still showing the programs running from the privious session, but I could not access them from my new logging in. So the old session seems to be running anywhere and anyhow.

That's a very bad behaviour. I have not saved my work and no chance to enter the running processes for that anymore, so dataloose is the consequence.
As special add: Package installation has not finished it's work, or better: I be not sure that it has done all installations with success.

Because I have had not made any updates/upgrades with this run I am optimistic that a newstart of the system does not break boot abilities, but think of this during an update/upgrade. -> The system may become broken.

I see this as critical bug.

Because of not knowing what happens exactly I have filed this against unity v5 with apport call, so you have all logs which gathered by apport.

When you have the need for further logs or doings, tell me.

I have just looked over the kernel log. There are no entries that differ from the normal system behaviour.

After a system newstart I must run dpkg --configure -a to clean up the system configuration.

The installation process was interupted by the automatically logout.

Looking at XorgLogOld.txt, this clearly seems to be an X server segfault:

Alright, well we can't investigate it without a better stacktrace so I'll close it. Feel free to reopen if you get a full backtrace.
