I am routinely seeing this as well, I am getting regular (maybe once a
day) crash notification and asked whether to submit a report.  I say
yes and it seems to be doing it but then just disappears.  In
/var/crash I see that I am getting colord crashed with SIGABRT in
raise() for which there are already several reports with hundreds

Sometimes when reporting a bug one got a notification that it had
already been reported, I wonder whether it is just that this message
is getting lost.
