Bug Description

Binary package hint: apport-symptoms

When trying to collect data to report an audio issue, apport-bug crashes with the following error:

ERROR: symptom script /usr/share/apport/symptoms/audio.py crashed:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/apport/ui.py", line 56, in thread_collect_info
    package = symb['run'](report, ui)
  File "/usr/share/apport/symptoms/audio.py", line 203, in run
    package = problem_func(report, ui, card, isOutput, jack)
  File "/usr/share/apport/symptoms/audio.py", line 78, in symptom_fails_after_a_while
TypeError: pa_finish_logging() takes exactly 1 argument (0 given)

This occurs every time, and is preventing me from filing a bug report regarding my audio woes in Natty. This is on a mostly clean installation of Natty -- I kept only my home folder, and manually deleted all configuration files and folders contained therein (except for Wine prefixes and virtual machines).

In response to the question whether to backport it to natty... I would sure like to report my audio problem. I've quite a serious one. Audio goes noisy at seemingly random times and well I'd like to be able to use apport to report that.
