Bug Description

Malone requires me to enter the computer-friendly (i.e., apt-get-able) name of a package to file a bug against it. In Ubuntu especially, some programs have little resemblance between the package name and the name with which the software presents itself (for example, the Archive Manager is in a package called file-roller, and the Software Updates applet is in a package called update-manager), and it is very difficult indeed, given a program like the Archive Manager or the Software Updates applet, to find out which package it came in.

yes, this is quite annoying.

Please fix it.

Perhaps
1) better search on bug reporting system
2) make the applications use they computer name more often
