[Bug 1591587] Re: Accessing files on Android causes system crash


This does _not_ happen with my Cannon PowerShot S3IS, nor has it
happened with any of the USB sticks that I've used on this computer.

  Accessing files on Android causes system crash

Status in linux-lts-utopic package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Using 14.04.1, with all the latest upgrades

  Kernel: 3.16.0-73-generic

  Phone: Samsung Galaxy V

  tim@puter:~$ lsb_release -rd
  Description:	Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS
  Release:	14.04

  I'm doing a lot of photography and movie work with my Android phone,
  and the system is freezing a lot in association with that.

  I have never had a system freeze when I haven't had my phone plugged
  into USB during that session.

  I _have_ had numerous freezes otherwise.  I also know of one other
  Ubuntu user in the Portland, Oregon area who is suffering similar

  My typical work is to plug in, unmount the Verizon "CD", mount the
  camera, navigate to the movie folder, copy some files over to my hard
  drive (NOT move -- I'll explain in a bit), erase the files, unmount
  (or not) and unplug.

  I have had crashes happen at any point in the above process (it's
  happened once during a file move; all my pictures were erased on the
  camera and zero-length on this machine -- I don't move any more -- I
  copy and then delete).  Sometimes the system just freezes.  Sometimes
  I get the Red Linux Blink of Death on my keyboard.

  So, dunno what's going on other than it no work right.

  This does not seem to be generating automagic bug reports, so there
  may be many more people than me seeing it, and silently suffering.
