Bug Description

Original post about this at: http://askubuntu.com/questions/202029/keep-getting-smbd-errors-but-apport-asks-questions-i-cant-answer .

When I get smbd crashes on my system, apport tries to handle the reporting, but starts off by trying to ask questions. I can't sensibly/usefully answer these questions. For example, the first question asks:

How would you best describe your setup?
 -I am running a Windows File Server
-I am connecting to a Windows File Server.

Since I am doing both, I have no idea which to choose. In any case, selecting one leads to the next question:
Did this used to work properly with a previous release?
-No
-Yes

But I never tried to use Samba in a previous release, so I can't seriously answer this.

After picking an option here, I get more questions in a similar vein. Surely there should be "I don't know/I haven't tried" options, even if they simply mean apport tells you that you can't submit a useful bug report.
