[Bug 904940] Re: compiz crashed with SIGABRT while changing external monitor configuration



So, the processing of this bug report highlights several flaws in the

First, version 1:0.9.6-0ubuntu4.1 of compiz-plugins-main-default is not
included in Precise (indeed, the SRU for including it in oneiric is
blocked *because* the fix isn't in precise yet.)  So the tracer should
not  have rejected the report based on this.

Second, version 1:0.9.6-0ubuntu4.1 of compiz-plugins-main-default
includes two bug fixes neither of which have to do with crashes, so this
crash report is still valid.

Third, for whatever reason, apport was unable to produce a valid trace.
Perhaps this is due to something related to the first issue.

Fourth, the core file has been deleted, even though I set the bug report
to public when I filed it (the machine is a test box with no private
data).  If apport is unable to create a trace from a core dump on a
public bug, it should not delete the core dump; again that just hides
information which could be useful in tracking down the problem.
