Right, calling sensible-pager should intercept SIGPIPE.

This bug was fixed in the package apport - 0.102

apport (0.102) hardy; urgency=low

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * Support reading reports with legacy zlib
    compression in 'retain compressed values' mode (as used nowadays by
    apport when reporting a crash). Add a test case, too. (LP: #129616)
  * debian/control, debian/rules: Switch from python-support to
    python-central, and use 'nomove' option so that apport works during
    upgrades, too. (LP: #121341)
  * debian/rules: Use dh_icons instead of dh_iconcache.
  * debian/apport.init: Do not stop apport in any runlevel (LSB header).
  * apport/, run_crash(): Catch zlib.error on invalidly compressed core
    dumps. (LP: #176977)
  * apport/ Give a meaningful error message instead of crashing if the
    package for a crash report is not installed any more. (LP: #149739)
  * apport/ Do not include ProcCmdline in bug reports, since these are
    not ack'ed by the user and might contain sensitive data. (LP: #132800)
  * apport/ Add various test cases for crash reports whose packages have
    been uninstalled between the crash and the report. This reproduces
    LP #186684.
  * apport/, load_report(): Produce proper error message if
    executable/interpreter path do not exist any more. (LP: #186684)
  * cli/apport-cli: Intercept SIGPIPE when calling sensible-pager, to avoid
    crash when quitting it prematurely. (LP: #153872)
  * bin/apport-checkreports: Print out a list of program names/packages which
    have a pending crash report. (LP: #145117)
  * apport/, run_argv(): Add return code which indicates whether any
    report has been processed.
  * cli/apport-cli: If no pending crash reports are present, say so and refer
    to --help. (LP: #182985)
  * apport/ Waive check for obsolete packages if environment defines
    $APPORT_IGNORE_OBSOLETE_PACKAGES. Document this in the apport-cli manpage.
    (LP: #148064)

  [ Daniel Hahler ]
  * .crash file integration for KDE3 (LP: #177055)
    - debian/apport-qt.install: install added files qt4/apport-qt-mime.desktop
      and qt4/apport-qt-mimelnk.desktop
  * Fixed minor warnings/errors from desktop-file-validate in
    gtk/ and qt4/ (LP: #146957)
