API breakage: 'ConnectBug' object has no attribute 'Error'

Bug Description

I just updated the p-lp-bugs main checkout in the apport retracers, and they now fail with

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/ubuntu-archive/apport-retracer-i386/bin/crash-digger", line 230, in <module>
    opts.dup_db, opts.arch_indep_dupcheck, opts.logfile, opts.pidfile).run()
  File "/home/ubuntu-archive/apport-retracer-i386/bin/crash-digger", line 157, in run
  File "/home/ubuntu-archive/apport-retracer-i386/bin/crash-digger", line 71, in fill_pool
  File "/home/ubuntu-archive/apport-retracer-i386/apport/apport/crashdb.py", line 211, in duplicate_db_consolidate
    fixed_ver = self.get_fixed_version(id)
  File "/home/ubuntu-archive/apport-retracer-i386/apport/apport/crashdb_impl/launchpad.py", line 261, in get_fixed_version
    except Bug.Error.LPUrlError, e:
AttributeError: 'ConnectBug' object has no attribute 'Error'


  Bug = Connector.ConnectBug()

This looks like a recent API breakage. If it is really justified, I'd need to do apport SRUs for stable releases, or some weird workaround hacks, but preferably Python libraries should not break API unless they really have to. Can this be put back in a sane way?

Thank you!

please test this against this code (copy from apport/crashdb_impl/launchpad.py):

   ...: b = Bug(1111234536356)
   ...: except Bug.Error.LPUrlError, e:

It should be LPUrlError in the patch not LPURLError, I'll merge the correct fix shortly.
