crash handler does not include package version

Bug #1324833 reported by Brian Murray on 2014-05-30

aptdaemon (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The Ubuntu Error Tracker contains crashes from aptdaemon that don't include the package version. An example can be found here:

Where we can see:

Package aptdaemon

This makes the version table on the problem page useless.

This should be fixed in Utopic and in Trusty at least.

[Test Case]
Upload a crash, check error tracker for package version information.

[Regression Potential]
This feature is already in Utopic; and the error tracker should be able to handle the additional data.

Here is an example crash with the package version in it.

Additionally, looking at the problem page we can see the proposed package version only.
