I have just one question: does this crash[1], issue etc. with
'accountsservices' could be a sign of a security threat? I'm
asking, because this package provides a set of D-Bus
interfaces for querying and *manipulating *user account
information (...) based on useradd, usermod etc. commands.

There is one more thing*. *Apport log files contains something
like this: report /var/crash/_usr_lib_accountsservice_accounts-*
already exists and unseen, doing nothing to avoid disk usage DoS.

I understand - in some way - above note, but I'm afraid about
'usage DoS' text. Is there something, to worry about?

Best regards.
