    Re: Weird issue with Gnome Classic

    I think this was still on the login screen. There were no unusual dialogs.

    Here's what happened:

    My computer locked up except for the mouse cursor

    I restarted lightdm using the console (Alt-F2)

    I logged back in. Every thing was fine.

    I get up to check something downstairs in my house.

    I come back and it's in the console (black screen, white text, DOS-looking place). It's displaying some messages like when you shut down the computer in Linux. The part where it checks to make sure everything is shutting down properly.

    Except I did not shut down my computer. My old password was displayed in the middle of the screen.

    I tried doing sudo service lightdm restart as designated in this answer:
    http://askubuntu.com/questions/4408/...ubuntu-freezes

    But nothing happened. So I just powered off my computer and turned it back on. From that point everything worked normally but I am not sure as to why that happened. That was why I changed my password just to be safe.

    Question Re: Weird issue with Gnome Classic

    It seems it was a bug then. How can I report this so it can be looked at?

    you can try reporting it on launchpad ubuntu bugs (google it) but if its not reproducable easily it'll probably go unfixed and just passed off as a little hiccup.
