Bug Description

Binary package hint: apport

When running ubuntu-bug without an argument, the user is presented with a friendly series of questions to help narrow down their problem. However, the window title is "apport-gtk" which is the name of the binary and not descriptive. A better title might be something like "Report a problem".

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * New upstream release:
    - dupdb-admin: Add "removeid" command.
    - dupdb-admin: Use the in-memory CrashDB implementation for simple
      operations like dump or changeid, which do not require an actual
      backend. This makes the command work in checkouts without a
    - dupdb-admin: Fix UnicodeEncodeError crash.
    - Fix crash if a crash report does not have a DistroRelease.
    - Set the default "Apport" title for choice dialogs instead of the default
      apport-gtk title. Thanks Robert Roth. (LP: #608222)
    - apport-gtk: Update markup_escape_text() call to current glib.
      (LP: #829635)
  * data/package-hooks/ Only set a DuplicateSignature and
    change the source package if we are reporting a package or program crash,
    not for ProblemType == 'Bug'.

  [ Brian Murray ]
  * data/general-hooks/ check the device holding /, /var and /usr
    partitions for I/O errors and if they exist make the bug unreportable
  * data/package-hooks/ Use attachment OemConfigLog to determine
    whether or not to tag the bug oem-config not information in syslog
