  [vivid] Ubuntu session crashes on LDAP login via SSSD

Status in gnome-session package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Following situation:

  - Ubuntu is configured use SSSD to permit login of LDAP users
  - Automatic creation of home directories is switched on and confirmed to work
  - LDAP users (as well as local users) can login to
    * local console
    * SSH console
    * LXDE (via LightDM)
    * Openbox (via LightDM)
  - However, LDAP users can't use the standard Ubuntu session (Unity) because it crashes right after LightDM permits the login (returning to the LightDM greeter)
  - Local users can login to the standard Ubuntu session without any problems
  - For LDAP users, after each failed login attempt, a file like "upstart-udev-bridge.21334.pid" containing a five digit number different from that in the file name is left back in the home directory
