apport not blocking DBus no reply bug reports
As requested in bug 914220 apport should be blocking python crashes that are due to clients not receiving a reply. This is working in quantal and is tested by test_dbus_
Precise users are being notified of crashes that are not useful to developers and we don't want to receive. Receiving pop-up notifications for these crash reports decreases the user experience when using precise.
1) Download 'test_python_
2) Execute 'python test_python_
3) Observe a test failure:
DBus.Error.NoReply with a running service
4) Install apport from precise-proposed
5) run the same test and observe the test passing:
Ran 7 tests in 28.111s
It is possible that apport would not generate crash reports for other types of python crashes but based off the code change it is not likely.
