Steps to reproduce:

1. Start Ubuntu.
2. Usplash, etc.
3. GDM appears. I type my login and password, and I press Enter.
4. GNOME starts initializing. Now, go to Ctrl+Alt+F1 immediatly.
5. In the login: prompt in console mode, I type my login and password, press
Enter, and go into the system.
6. I do several shell commands (cd to any directory, ls, etc.), during one
minute or so.
7. Go to graphics mode, with Ctrl+Alt+F7. The GNOME desktop appears, now fully
8. I start any application, starting to work with the desktop.
9. After one minute or so, GDM restarts, closing all the programs and losing all
my non-saved work, without confirmation.
10. GDM appears again, asking for my login and password.

This bug is totally reproducible.
