*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1633319 ***
Public bug reported:
Upon upgrading to 16.10, yakkety yak, I cannot load Unity because the
indicator-datetime-service devours memory at an incredible pace before
being automatically killed, and restarting to devour all over again!
The workaround I found is to open a virtual terminal <Ctrl><Alt><F1> and
then log into unity while quickly switching back to the the F1 terminal.
I then repeatedly do "killall -KILL indicator-datetime-service" until it
stops coming back.
This is a major bug in that it renders the entire system unusable. It
happened on both my laptop and my desktop after upgrade to 16.10.
