Bug Description

The Oneiric version of apport has been updated so that compressed log files, like 'DpkgTerminalLog.gz', are checked to see if they match a bug pattern. However, this fix should be SRU'ed in previous releases of Ubuntu so that we prevent unnecessary bug reports in Launchpad.

    - generic hook: Don't report package installation failures due to
      segfaulting maintainer scripts. We want the actual crash report only.
