/etc/init.d/apportshowed this was disabled so I enabled that by editing
/etc/init.d/apport restartI could happily file away a nautilus bug.
But wait a minute... That report went to Launchpad, not Gnome Bugzilla! (Wouldn't it be a nice world in which Ubuntu got the flood of duplicates for the things we fix but they never update </gripe>). It appears apport is only enabled during development so I shouldn't have had to enable it. I figure it is bug-buddy that normally catches bugs and sends to Gnome; is anyone else getting this/know how to tell if the crash catcher is running?
