Bug Description

required virtual size does not fit available size: requested=(2944, 1080), minimum=(320, 200), maximum=(2048, 2048)

GDBus.Error:org.gtk.GDBus.UnmappedGError.Quark._gnome_2drr_2derror_2dquark.Code3: required virtual size does not fit available size: requested=(2944, 1080), minimum=(320, 200), maximum=(2048, 2048)

This feature was working until a recent update.

When booting I see a broken pipe message, trying to get vcount- something like that.

Ubuntu 13 daily build as of around April 12-14

It went in with 3.9-rc1, but I'll send it to the stable lists and hopefully they will pick it up.

The fix has been picked up for the next stable 3.4 and 3.9 release. No word from the Ubuntu kernel team yet but hopefully they'll pick it up for 3.8 as well.
