Bug Description

Every time I run the "ubuntu-bug" program, I get a crash report about it.

1. I run (say) "ubuntu-bug muon-updater"
2. Apport window appears, "Send problem report to developers?" with info about the bug.
3. Click Send.
4. "Uploading problem information" dialog appears and disappears.
5. Launchpad website appears. I start filing in details.
6. Sometime soon, Plasma reports a crash in its system tray. A dialog appears. See my screenshot.
7. I click the "Continue" button to submit a crash bug report. The dialog disappears, but nothing else happens that I can see.

Hi - I uploaded the requested crash file. Should the "incomplete" status be changed? Thanks.

i had problem with this too...
i was launching apport-collect form konsole so i saw the error, which was in /usr/share/apport/apport-kde python file, on line 358... str wasn't coping with some unicode strings, so I changed it to using "encode"..

358 QTreeWidgetItem(keyitem, [str(line.encode('utf-8'))])

works now..

Someone has just posted a one-line fix, so is it possible for this fix to be incorporated?
