I recently started to experience a problem with Ubuntu 11.10 GNOME Panel. When I click on the standard sound icon over there, the whole panel disappears and reloads in a second or so, and I think its crashing.

  1. If this is a known bug, do you know the url of corresponding entry at Launchpad?
  2. What is the packeage responsible for running the panel?
  3. Where can I find its (the panel's) logs?

I think that there is already a bug report for this problem in Launchpad, but you should mark it as affecting you in order to fix it in Ubuntu 11.10:

This might or might not be his crasher, maybe instead show him how to turn apport on so the tool can catch the crash, he can then submit it and let launchpad do all the work! – Jorge Castro Jan 4 '12 at 15:44
That is the bug I am experincing. The interesting thing is that I did not appear till some point. I will play around with some settings to check out what might cause it. – SkyDan Jan 4 '12 at 18:58
