Crash/error report text can't be copied to clipboard

Bug #1606712 reported by Dan Dascalescu
This bug affects 11 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
apport (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When an application crashes, the "The application XXX has closed unexpectedly" dialog doesn't allow copying the text to the clipboard. I want to send to the developer only the title of the crash, or I want to do a web search for it, so going to /var/crash and hunting for the right file is overkill.

Please make the text in that dialog copy/pastable.
