Cannot open profile user profile directory error after close and relaunch

  • Hi all,

    I'm facing a rather annoying problem with the latest version of Opera Developer on Linux.

    You can see an example screenshot here : http://i.imgur.com/qRQiCXh.jpg

    • Steps to reproduce: Close Opera and relaunch it.

    • Actual result: Cannot reopen Opera, stating it cannot access the user profile directory due to lack of sufficient privileges

    • Expected result: Opera should reopen normally

    • OS: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (x86_64; GNOME) (Up-to-date as of this post)

    • Version of Opera: 42.0.2392.0
