[Bug 2009290] [NEW] flashback session crashed and required log out


Public bug reported:

Using ubuntu flashback compiz lately (at least versions 22.04, 22.10 and 23.04 development), there are some abrupt crashes that create a white screen with an unhappy face mentioning that the system faced an error and requires to log out. I cannot do anything else but log out. Proceeding according to the message I can see momentarily that an ubuntu error report is pending, yet I cannot do anything since system proceeds to the logout screen. In order to fill this bug I found out to do the following:
1) crash happens
2) proceed to log out screen
3) log in again
4) go to /var/crash
5) check reports and see that the name of the files created are: 
which have exactly the same date of creation.
6) issue the command:apport-cli compiz
in order for this report to be created
