Now has a debdiff attached which stops the apport hook from attaching
the two Ubuntu One logfiles which would almost always have filenames in
them, and I've subscribed ubuntu-main-sponsors who can review and upload.
I don't know whether this is the long term solution, but I hope that it
will address the most urgent part of the privacy concerns that you raised.
