I had to remove the tag for now, since apport-retrace freaks out on this

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/tmp/tmpdEWbo0/usr/bin/apport-retrace", line 396, in <module>
  File "/tmp/tmpdEWbo0/usr/bin/apport-retrace", line 105, in report_from_launchpad
    report[key] = gzip.open(att.filename).read()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/gzip.py", line 220, in read
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/gzip.py", line 292, in _read
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/gzip.py", line 309, in _read_eof
    isize = U32(read32(self.fileobj))   # may exceed 2GB
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/gzip.py", line 40, in read32
    return struct.unpack("<l", input.read(4))[0]
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/struct.py", line 87, in unpack
    return o.unpack(s)
struct.error: unpack requires a string argument of length 4

It looks as if the Python gzip module does not get along with unpacking
the attached CoreDump.gz. I need to take a look at this.
