There is a details button that will give you more information about what is
being reported.  This is the same as in the .crash file in /var/crash, but
most of the .crash file is taken up with a core dump which is a pain to
scroll through with 'less'.  But if anyone is that interested there is a
command apport-unpack, which splits up a crash file into separate files for
easy reading.
