This bug was fixed in the package apport - 1.23-0ubuntu1

apport (1.23-0ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  [ Brian Murray ]
  * data/package-hooks/ Do not create a DuplicateSignature
    for bugs with a Traceback included as it is redundant

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * New upstream release:
    -, crash-digger, dupdb-admin: Drop the concept of "duplicate DB
      consolidation". Such massive queries cause timeouts with e. g.
      Launchpad. Instead, update the status of potential master bugs in the
      crash DB whenever check_duplicate() is called. Note that this does not
      affect Ubuntu itself, just the retracers in the data center.
    - Fix crash in close_duplicate() if master bug was already
      marked as a duplicate of the examined bug.
    -, load(): Fix missing last character if the last line
      in a multi-line field is not terminated with a newline.
    - Fix test_marking_python_task_mangle() check to work with
      current Launchpad.
    - apport-retrace: If the user did not specify a --cache directory, create
      a shared one instead of letting the two install_packages() calls create
      their own. This ensures that the apt and dpkg status is up to date, and
      avoids downloading the package indexes multiple times. (LP: #847951)
    - apport-retrace: Give proper error mesage instead of AssertionError crash
      if a report does not contain standard Apport format data. (LP: #843221)
    -, get_new_reports(): Fix crash if report file disappears in
      the middle of the operation. (LP: #640216)
    - apport/, load_report(): Intercept another case of broken report
      files. (LP: #445142)
    - apport/, standard_title(): Escape regular expression control
      characters in custom exception names. (LP: #762998)
  * data/package-hooks/ Fix crash if
    prepare_duplicate_signature() does not return anything. (LP: #843911)
  * debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.2 (no changes necessary).
