I've added an upstream bug watch. It seems to have already been reported. Thanks very much for the stacktraces.

Do you realize you are thanking a program?
It works by looking for bugs with need-[architecture]-retrace tag that is automatically added by apport itself, add the traces, and then
remove the tag.
What I find strange is that it took so long to find my bug.

Crashed for me on 8.04 trying to archive a crash for a different bug. I'll attach this one without compressing. Hope this helps.

Don't attach crash files to the bug, use apport to send those when required, in this case the bug has a debug backtrace already so there is no need to attach a new crash
