  Crashes after exiting fullscreen

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have noticed that recently upon going fullscreen in VLC on Ubuntu
  GNOME 15.10 with GNOME 3.18 that on most occasions when I exit
  fullscreen (even if I've only been in it for a few seconds) I get
  logged out of my user session (my computer automatically puts me in
  TTY2 for some reason at startup although there is another GUI session
  (not console) in TTY7) and get taken to the user session at TTY7 where
  I am met with the thing with the time on it that I have time slide up
  to log in, though it is a metal colour (and not the one I set it to
  for anything): Metal.png

  But it is not even as though my user session has simply been somehow
  moved there as that is actually a separate user session that asks me
  to log in and not to unlock my old session. And when I then go to
  TTY2, instead of finding my session, I find the console login screen
  of TTY2. So now I am basically unable to use fullscreen in VLC (it
  doesn't appear to happen when using anything else) because my session
  seems to get destroyed every time.

  And I am not sure if this is a bug with VLC or Xorg, so I thought I
  should report it under both, I am also not sure if it would just
  happen with VLC, but so far that has been the only fullscreen
  application to have this happen at the same time as it running.
