Thank you for your report!

However, processing it in order to get sufficient information for the
developers failed (it does not generate an useful symbolic stack trace). This
might be caused by some outdated packages which were installed on your system
at the time of the report:

mountall: installed version 2.23, latest version: 2.24
unity-dbg: installed version 3.6.2-0ubuntu1, latest version: 0.2.46-0ubuntu5
libc6-dbg: installed version 2.13-0ubuntu3, latest version: 2.13-0ubuntu4
libglib2.0-0-dbg: installed version 2.28.1-1ubuntu1, latest version: 2.28.2-0ubuntu1

Please upgrade your system to the latest package versions. If you still
encounter the crash, please file a new report.

Thank you for your understanding, and sorry for the inconvenience!
