Bug Description

this happens since the machine was updated from 20120210 to the current development release. Usually when switching workspaces, X crashes, and I'm presented with a the login manager screen.

just to avoid confusion. this machine was running eglibc-2.15 for some months without any issues.

I hit this crash with a fresh install (i.e., not upgraded from prior release) 12.04 prerelease.

I added a few more duplicate Bugs.

I usually encounter this Bug when surfing the web although it happens randomly as well.

I crash back to the login screen.

I did a clean install of 12.04 yesterday. Bug is still present.

By the way.. I am not on a mac and have been running this PC for years with ubunto without problems

We're not sure the bugs marked as dupes of this bug are actually the same underlying issue as this bug report, however apport is stripping the cores and stacktraces from those bugs so it's impossible to say for sure. But of the dupes I looked at, we do already have similar reports filed.

I added them as Duplicates because I am unable to pinpoint a culprit or to reproduce the bug at will.

If you need further logs etc. I will be happy to provide them.

Matthias: are you still hitting this bug? It seems like the apport retracer is duplicating other bugs to this one even if they are unrelated so it would be good to close this one if not.

Robert Hooker (sarvatt) wrote :

Matthias: I am closing this because I know it was fixed when eglibc was uploaded not long after preventing the X crashes with nvidia, and unfortunately duplicates are amassing via apport bugs that aren't really duplocates. If anyone has a bug they are still hitting that is a duplicate of this please file a new bug and we'll look at it. Many apologies for the trouble!
