Bug Description

I was running USB tests when it first happened, and then unity crashed (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/1161916)

Then it happened again without unity crashing, and then again (unless it's all releated).

I don't have a working camera at this time, but the screen turned into a series of horizontal lines, that would scroll up and down with the arrow keys (I'm assuming it was the webpage I was on) but wouldn't scroll with the mouse. The mouse pointer looked the same.

Charles Ford, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in the development release from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p xserver-xorg-video-ati REPLACE-WITH-BUG-NUMBER

Please note, given that the information from the prior release is already available, doing this on a release prior to the development one would not be helpful.

Thank you for your understanding.
