Bug Description

aptdaemon includes a file named crash.py which is supposed to create apport problem reports for a given crash. However, searching through bug attachments for aptdaemon bug reports I don't see any with the key "TransactionRole" in any recent bug reports.

 $ grep -r TransactionRole *
bug-1058886/Description.txt:TransactionRole: role-commit-packages
bug-1158395/Description.txt:TransactionRole: role-install-file
bug-1166875/Description.txt:TransactionRole: role-remove-packages

bug-1306498/Description.txt:TransactionRole: role-pk-query
bug-1380290/apport_crash.log:TransactionRole: role-pk-query

It seems likely that either "trans" is null, or something is wrong with aptdaemon's crash handler.
