[Bug 1405214] Re: Media and Custom Keyboard shortcut, as well as volume / brightness OSD stop randomly working


I have made some further tests:
- I cannot confirm that suspend and rewake yield the same failures (even after 5 cycles of suspend+rewake, docked or not docked).
- undocking causes the failure of OSD and shortcuts
- One time (but not consistently) I got the error message, following the suggestion of submitting a bug report, that notify-OSD had crashed. No word regarding shortcuts. Strangely, shortcuts and OSD kept working. I could not submit the report, since the report application crashed itself.

  working at that instant. I note that everything works fine again when
  I reboot the system while being docked. Hence, it seems not the
  docking per se that causes the problem, but a process associated with
  docking (and presumably

  I've looked at similar posts, but they all seem to origin in 2012, and
  the circumstances, where the shortcuts or OSD fail to work, are

  Can anyone help, and assist me in identifying the source and precise
  circumstances, to create a useful bug report, or finding a fix?
