Bug Description

This is a usability problem -- it makes reporting ubuntu bugs harder.

I found a problem with I reported as Bug #998030, but the information uploaded by ubuntu-bug in that bug may NOT be correct. The reason is that:

1) I am sure it is a system wide bug, but launchpad does not allow me to report it directly, it just give me instructions to run ubuntu-bug

2) it is a system component bug, but ubuntu-bug INSIST me to provide a package!

If this is not a bug and the behavior is intended, I would be very appreciated if anyone can explain what is the best route to report bug such as #998030

If you experience some GUI misbehaviour, you can execute the following command:
ubuntu-bug --window
and then click on the affected element as prompted.
