I had lots of problems (and lots of lost data) because of this bug in 12.04:

Even after that I've had an occasional Unity/Xorg crash. And it's very
inconvenient every time since I always loose work when working in
applications that can't auto-save etc.

-rw-r-----  1 root     whoopsie 5718069 okt 22 16:14 _usr_bin_Xorg.0.crash

crashed and question about submitting. I then read here: and changed under Privacy >

Now I entered this setting again and the option was unchecked! It seems
that checking that option doesn't stick.

Please advice, how should I handle/report my crashing Xorg/Unity..
