[Bug 1566739] [NEW] compiz/unity crashes when searching in dash


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

this is for 16.04LTS BETA2 so hopefully this would be ironed out
anyways, just thought i'd file a report since i have consistent crashes.

Im running on a dell xps13 9350 (late 2015 model)

Each time I open the dash and start typing, the system freezes briefly,
and then compiz restarts.

By freezing I mean I cant move the mouse and no inputs seem to work, and
screed does not update for running programs either (not sure but i
suspect they might be doing work still, just without the screen

The UI then dissapears entirely, leaving me with only my open
applications (unity meny, the systemtray at the top, both dissapears)
indicating a compiz crash.

this behavior is fairly consistent, altough somtimes compiz doesnt
crash, i just get the freeze for about 3-4 seconds, after which, if im
lucky, my searchresult appear in the dash.

unsure if bug stems from unity or compiz, but my guess would be compiz.
