Description John Shand 2018-03-05 01:26:05 UTC
i am unsure if this means anything.
Comment 1 Franck Bui 2018-03-07 10:56:43 UTC
when does it happen exactly ? can you reproduce at will ?

It would have been nice to give more details...
Comment 2 Franck Bui 2018-03-07 11:01:51 UTC

I'm afraid i'm just an end user.  i have no experience whatsoever in software development.  from what i can tell i can't reproduce at will.

You don't need any developement knowledge to describe when it happens: at boot only, every boots, can reproduce reliably, etc...

And you still don't provided your system arch AFAICS.

to be honest, i actually just came across this issue.  the problem didn't really cause any abnormal behaviour as far as i know.

my system arch is x86_64

Then I would suggest to close this and re-open if you can reproduce.

Does that sound reasonable ?
Comment 10 Franck Bui 2018-08-03 15:26:34 UTC
OK let's close this one as "worksform" as the error is not showing anymore.
