bug#30758: 25.3; Cannot exit minibuffer with C-g when opening file or sw

1) emacs -Q
2) M-x
3) C-g
reproduces the error every time on my machine. Holding C-g for a couple of seconds fixes the problem. Also Esc Esc Esc still works. Even C-S-g works, even though describe-key translates it to C-g. I really think this might be a problem with Ubuntu Unity somehow rebinding or blocking C-g.

Using toogle-debug-on-quit with my normal config, I was able to trigger

  Debugger entered--Lisp error: (quit)
without any further info or

  Debugger entered--Lisp error: (quit)
  read-event(nil t 2)
  execute-extended-command(nil "toggle-debug-on-quit" nil)
  funcall-interactively(execute-extended-command nil "toggle-debug-on-quit" nil)
  call-interactively(execute-extended-command nil nil)
This was NOT reproducible with `emacs -Q`, though.

Do you see the same symptoms described in

    I have also noticed that, with toggle-debug-on-quit on, just typing C-g
    while in the normal writing buffer will always send me to the debugger on
    only one line:

    Debugger entered--Lisp error: (quit)

    This happens in the broken emacs only, and C-g here does nothing in the
    working emacs. Likewise, in the broken emacs, while I am highlighting text
    with C-space, C-g will 50% of the time cancel the highlight and 50% of the
    time open the above debugger on the timer start function.
