You have made bug reporting using Apport not better but worse.
I have been reporting bugs in the past using Apport.
I am using a current Karmic.
Reporting a current bug now constantly keeps telling me that I have not
the newest revisions of some programs. But Update Manager told me
differently. Indeed, calling Update Manager manually, there are newer
DEB packages available. After updating DEB packages the state of the
machine cannot be reconstructed any more.
I call this a regression.
Secondly: The automatism which you invented now hides what's really
going on, and I cannot make a sensible report about a crash that just
I am very sorry to say this.
