I'm having a problem with mdm restarting when I navigate to a particular webpage using FireFox. I've searched the forums and similar problems have been reported a while back and either Mesa or video drivers were thought to be the cause, although no one seemed to be absolutely sure. Most users reported intermittent problems, but my problem is 100% repeatable. Here's what I do:
1. Turn on PC and login
2. Open FireFox
3. Navigate to http://www.quirky.com/how-it-works
4. mdm restarts, brings me back to login page, and syslog reports the following:
cinnamon-session: Gdk-WARNING: cinnamon-session: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.#012
mdm: WARNING: mdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :0
5. I log back in, open FireFox and navigate back to http://www.quirky.com/how-it-works, and the page loads fine - no crash, no problems whatsoever.
I've repeated these steps at least 10 times now with exactly the same results. I haven't been able to resolve the issue (obviously) but shouldn't the fact that the problem goes away after logging back in be a clue?
