Sure you can!  man ubuntu-bug shows you can supply it with the PID of
the process you want to report a bug about.  I've never needed to use it
that way myself, but as far as I know that is designed specifically so
you can report bugs about currently running processes :)  How well that
works in practice when the issue is that you are running out of RAM, is
a different question... ubuntu-bug might not have enough RAM to run, if
ubiquity is using all of it and you have no swap space -- but that's a
separate issue :)

If you provide clear specific steps to reproduce, and the issue really
is readily reproducible, then lack of a stack trace should not be a
problem, as far as I know.
