After thinking about it, I think the logs may not be appropiate here.
Where would I find the logs?
You would want to create an account on Launchpad and raise the bug.
And, is it obvious how to go about raising a bug report?
The general steps are outlined here.
To raise the bug, after it has crashed, open a terminal and type
This is not a PPA i have ever used so i cannot say whether it is applicable to your problem even though it solved Petro Dawg's problem. I'll leave it up to you whether to install it or not.
Now this is where I need some close guidance, please. I'm not well versed in these matters.
Do I run each command one at a time and, in the case of the last two, wait until I get some notification that the update/upgrade has occurred? And only then do a Restart? Or is a Restart required after each command has run?
Please excuse my ignorance and caution.
I will detail how to run the commands though...
To run the commands, open a terminal and type each command one after an other.
The first command will require you to enter your password. It will not be echoed to the screen.
The other commands will not require you to enter your password as long as they are typed in before the sudo timer times out (default 15 minutes IIRC).
There is no need to reboot after each command, only after the last command (If you were to restart lightdm from the console there should be no need to reboot at all but a reboot is easiest).
You will see when they have finished running.
