Added reference to libglib2.0-0 package to get apport to collect data

OK... could not add libglib2.0-0. Apport says there is nothing to report for glib2.0 since it is not installed and /var/crash is empty (it doesn't exist).

Bump...

This problem seems to be related to the Ubuntu One client. After removing the client due to another problem, this error no longer happens.

I have the same problem with ubuntu 10.10 with 2.6.35-22.
I am as well using Ubuntu One, but it's no option for me removing it.

I'm seeing this too, removing ubuntuone-client allows me to use Nautilus again.
