Status in “dmg2img” package in Ubuntu: In Progress

Bug description:
Binary package hint: dmg2img

dmg2img is suffering a SIGSEGV.  Apport caught the crash and I reviewed the report. The stack trace contained nothing useful.

I added the debug debs repository to apt's list...

echo "deb http://ddebs.ubuntu.com/ lucid main universe multiverse restricted" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debug.list
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com  ECDCAD72428D7C01
sudo apt-get update

...and then installed the packages:

apt-get install dmg2img-dbgsym libc6-i686-dbgsym

Using gdb to debug the program manually, it reports:

Reading symbols from /usr/bin/dmg2img...Reading symbols from /usr/lib/debug/usr/bin/dmg2img...(no debugging symbols found)...done.
(no debugging symbols found)...done.

And when apport next generates a crash report there are no dmg2img symbols, but there are libc6 symbols.
