	I've just seen the following from a different bug:

"ubuntu at ubuntu:~$ apport-collect -p linux 422159
Traceback (most recent call last):

That does not seem to be the same issue as for the breakage of -p. Does
this need to be brought up with anyone else or do you recognize this
failure. The reporter indicates that his network connection seems to be
working well.
