Linux has long enjoyed a UI element recently added in various ways to
both macOS and Windows: multiple workspaces, where sets of windows can
be switched between.
I've found an unfortunate things with LC on Ubuntu 14.04:
I tend to open LC on a workspace other than the default, switching to it
throughout the day as I go, and switching back to other workspaces for
Once in a while, I find that when I switch back to the workspace where I
have LC, the LC app will crash. When this happens it doesn't invoke the
OS dialog I see when other apps crash; it's just a silent and quick exit
in which the windows all close at once and the process dies.
The problem is that this is uncommon. I can go days at a time without
this happening. And I've found no common recipe when it does happen
other than having been working in the LC workspace for a while, and then
spending some time in another workspace before switching back; it's the
switching back that seems to trigger it.
Has anyone else seen this, whether on Linux or any other
I'm interested in comparing notes to see if we might pin down a recipe
worthy of submitting in a bug report.
