As far as I know, this problem is only on the live session. I posted a
patch for casper on
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/casper/+bug/1582270 that
should fix the issue. Could you have a look at it ? Or I can subscribe
ubuntu-sponsors for more inputs if you prefer.

Anyway, thanks for your help on this.
