Hi Nio,

can we await the bug fix to land before we start worrying about
regressions? Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre is a very good bug  solver and has
been chasing this one, in all its manifestations, all the way.

If we find an issue, report it via bug. As it is more 'core' than lubuntu,
Julien will accept into lubuntu the fixes made as part of the automated
process.  But please do allow 24 hours for it land.

We do have a couple of other issues that are marked "fix released" that we
need to test, this one is currently 'in progress'. I have no worry that
Mathieu will squish the bug.
