[Bug 1247189] Re: [13.10] Ubuntu freezes completely when switching user


Rob, don't listen to him. I got into an argument with him at bug #131094
and now he's here on a personal vendetta. He's just gonna keep asking
for irrelevant information until it gets so difficult to answer that he
can close this bug.

Christopher, I don't recognize your authority, leave this bug report alone!
Until someone from Canonical confirms that your activities are valid I don't want you to touch this bug report!

  [13.10] Ubuntu freezes completely when switching user

Bug description:
  I'm using a freshly installed Ubuntu 13.10.
  As soon as I click on a different user I want to switch to in the gearbox menu I get a black screen and nothing else is happening. I'm still able to SSH to that box and top does not show any process taking 100% CPU. Alt+sysrq+b is able to reboot the system.
  I had no problem like this with Ubuntu 13.04 on the same computer.

  Update: There is no issue if the nVidia card is disabled in the BIOS
  and I'm using the integrated video card of my i7 CPU.
