Bug Description

I noticed that apport was starting, then stopping, then starting again on my mako device with system-image:

current build number: 183
device name: mako
channel: ubuntu-touch/utopic-proposed
last update: 2014-08-10 21:00:31
version version: 183
version ubuntu: 20140811
version device: 20140809

Looking in my apport.log file I discovered the following:

While disk usage DoS is avoided apport is using a lot of CPU time to avoid it.
