Bug of the week

Bug 18025 - Widget problems in Ubuntu 16.04

This bug is about some problems with widgets, including the browser widget, found on Ubuntu Linux 16.04.

The reporter was very helpful, both over e-mail and on the bug report. Because he made a copy of his Ubuntu virtual machine available to us, we were able to easily reproduce his bug. Even better, we were able to use his VM to reproduce 5 other bugs that we were previously unable to, meaning that we are now able to make some progress with fixing them.

Help needed!
