[Bug 897291] [NEW] Compiz Crashes When Screen is Locked and Laptop Docked


Public bug reported:

I am running Ubuntu 11.10 with the default screen lock. I have an HP
Elitebook that I mount to a docking station at work.  There appears to
be an issue with the "Turn off after" feature of the screen lock and
being docked.

For example, if I set "Turn off after" to 30 minutes, if I am away from
my computer for more than 30 minutes, when I come back, then the window
manager (Compiz) will have crashed.  If I change it to 10 minutes, and
come back in 15 minutes, then Compiz will have also crashed.  However,
if I return before it has attempted to shut the screen off, then
everything is fine.  Also, this doesn't seem to ever happen when hooked
up to an external monitor or when the laptop is undocked.

My "Screen" settings are currently set to:

Turn off after: 1 hour

Lock: On

Lock screen after: Screen turns off

I don't know if there is a way to log what has caused the Compiz crash,
but this is a very annoying bug.
