i do not know what regression is but some one beat me to reporting the bug.


it is wierd that it works once loged in but not during the login screen/unity greeting/lightdm/whatever it is called.

While i was at it i added myself to the ambience dialog conflict:
dialog box is bearely readable in my screen.
