[Bug 980519] Re: Random log off in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS


I also got this bug recently.  At random clicks on random programs
(Chrome, web site links, etc), I would get logged out (black screen that
flutters constantly between the login until I click on the mouse, move
the mouse, type something, or in some cases wait long enough, in which a
stable login screen will appear to allow me to log back in).  However, I
was able to fix this issue by not using unity.  Instead I installed
gnome and logged out and back in with gnome (I'm using the class with no
effects version).  Hope this helps.

Bug description:
  I get logged off from Ubuntu sometimes. There is no error message or
  any indication that it is going to log off. The screen goes black, and
  after 2-4 seconds, i get presented with the Ubuntu Log On Screen.

  There is no clear pattern (or at least if have not noticed any). One
  time i am working with Netbeans, another time i am using firefox. This
  also means that at present i can not clearly say what package might be
  causing this behaviour.

  I am fairly sure the problem lies in 12.04 (or more precise - the
  combination of 12.04 and the hardware i am using). I do not have the
  same problem running 11.04 or 11.10.
