[Bug 1798867] [NEW] Compiz Crashed with SIGSEGV [Radeon]


Public bug reported:

On login, the desktop takes a long time to load, and when it does, everything blinks. It is possible (but difficult) to open a terminal and execute commands, through the right-click desktop menu.

I first noticed the issue in mid-July of 2018.

Acer 5100
Ubuntu 16.04 (64-bit)
Graphics card: VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RS482M [Mobility Radeon Xpress 200]

Believed to be mesa-related, as symptoms very similar to bug #1741447
and #1735594. I have been informed by a mesa developer that my issue is
different because that bug affects Intel GPUs. This system has a Radeon

Log files are as attached to bug #1795709. That bug was declared invalid
by Apport because it says I don't have the necessary debug packages
installed. However, I could not find the debug packages in the
repository, so that is why I am submitting this report manually.

Many thanks for any help.
