$ lsb_release -a; uname -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu Natty (development branch)
Release: 11.04
Codename: natty
Linux S2100-06 2.6.38-8-generic-pae #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 05:17:09 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Then log a bug. Natty is NOT ready and NOT stable. You will get issues like this until and a little after release day. If you need an OS that works then use Lucid or Maverick. If you are happy to stomach feature holes and bugs like this in order to log bugs and get the OS ready for release then use Natty

Since you are confirmed this is a bug, I will log it. Thanks.

@Shawn
I've reproduced this, posted missing information in the bug report, and marked the bug as Confirmed (since a second person--me--can produce it, and enough information is now posted that a developer could begin work on the bug). Thank you for reporting this bug! For the future, I would encourage you to read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs, which provides a great deal of information that is very useful when reporting bugs in Ubuntu.
