   I've been debugging someones X drivers which crashes their X (sometimes) when movies play, and I was wondering why apport never picked up on the crashes. Reading up, it's because X traps it's signals and bt's itself.


   How about enabling NoTrapSignals by default so that apport can handle X crashes? It's pretty important to keep X working, and debugging it's a pain. Letting apport take on as much of the job as possible for regular users seems to make a lot of sense to me.
