1) ubuntu-bug hangs at step "what particular problem do you observe",
when i've enabled it to collect problem information (if it didn't do
that step automatically:  The "CPI" window progress bar keeps moving,
but never finishes, so i had to press cancel on that, after about 4

2) The "Apport" window titled window, with "wppdyo?" text, & the
previous window, might be not displaying fully - 
a) in my KU 10.04, there are borders inside the window for top, right,
left, but none for the bottom, & 
b) I cant drag the bottom of the window edge down to see more - screen
pointer doesnt detect the bottom of that window to grab it.
- last question visible is "Removable storage..."

2.5) I chose not to send the report becuase it didn't seemed to collect
specific personally identifiable info (UUID of resume device).  It would
be better if such info was deleteable before sending the report.  FYI.

Please tell me:
1) what do you base "This looks like..." on?  Do you have some urls for
us to read? bug fix reports? other?
2) what leads you to believe "most likely fixed"?  again: urls please so
I can learn more.

3) Well, great for Maverick if it's fixed there, but
3b) I really need a fix for KU 10.04, as do all the other 10.04 users.

This cost me 2 hours of my time yesterday when I lost my work when this
improper session logout occurred. (er, plus having to investigate for a

Other people with 10.04 will lose time too.  So, we need a fix for
10.04.  If not, that makes Ubuntu be crappy software, if a fix cant bet
into 10.04, when it is 2+ months till the next version (10.10) is out. 
2 months is too long to wait for a fix for a bad problem like this.

Thanks fo the info, T.

A suggestion:  You would be well served to include a link to your work,
so people can know a bit about you, & perhaps learn & understand your
areas of expertise. 

Are you a Canonical employee?  volunteer?  What do you do on X?  etc.

please let us know.

Thanks :)
