Package: gnome
Version: 1:3.14+3
Severity: serious
Justification: makes the package in question unusable or mostly so; causes data loss

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
                while closing windows;
                working on the Terminal;
                while random browsing;
                while rhythmbox playback in the lock screen;
                while rhythmbox playback in the lock screen and
                having to log in several times
                (2-3 lock screen appears after lock screen again)
                just to get to a black screen.
        mouse movement recognised
        keyboard input randomly recognised
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
        1.1 Switched to console and back.
        2.1 Switched to console and tried to killall gnome-panel s
        3.1 Tried to restart gnome/gdm3
                3.1.1 [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Backspace]
                3.1.2 with su: #/etc/init.d/gmd3 restart
        4.1 Switched to console and restarted as root (#shutdown -r now)
   * What was the outcome of this action?
        1.2 Black screens. No mouse movement or keyboard input recognised
                (Except switching to console)
        2.2 There were no gnome-panel s running
        3.2.1 Did not respond to keyboard input
        3.2.2 gdm3 restarted - Seeing Login screen -> login -> black screen
                and no mouse movement or keyboard input recognised.
        4.2 Worked. With dataloss on several documents/applications progress
                that couldn't be saved
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
        That gnome/gdm3 restart and I can work from the point where it

Regards and happy new year,
