Here's what i did and it can be reproducible easily.

This happens when you press Cancel button when prompted to enter the password to collect information to be included in the bug.

So basically
1. Ubuntu-bug ubiquity
2. Cancel when it prompts to enter the password

** Occurs in precise as well

This bug was fixed in the package apport - 2.5.2-0ubuntu4

apport (2.5.2-0ubuntu4) quantal; urgency=low

  * Merge from trunk:
    - hookutils.py, attach_root_command_outputs(): Ignore IOError crash about
      nonexisting files, which can happen if the user dismisses authorization.
      (LP: #1051222)
    - launchpad.py: Fix tag filtering for Python 3. (LP: #1052754)
