Bug Description

I got the "Rhythmbox has stopped responding" dialog, hit "Report Problem", and apport ground for a while, then asked me what the problem was -- and none of the options were related to crashing. I guess it assumed I invoked it manually and some critical file wasn't generated.

Aaaaand it just happened again. This time I went with "No sound" / "None of the above" and went through the test tones, and it wanted to file a "playback problem" bug against alsa-driver. Because rhythmbox froze. Talk about barking up the wrong tree... It's quite clear that apport doesn't realize that rhythmbox crashed and is assuming it was invoked manually.
