Release notes 

Improvements:
 * fileutils.py, shared_libraries(): Return a "name → path" dict instead of
   just a set of names. Thanks Kyle Nitzsche.
 * sandboxutils.py: Support unpackaged executables, i. e. reports which do not
   have "Package" and "Dependencies" fields. For those, get required libraries
   from "ProcMaps". Thanks Kyle Nitzsche.

Bug fixes:
 * Add "com.ubuntu.apport.apport-gtk-root" polkit action for running apport-gtk
   through pkexec to access system crash reports. Thanks Brian Murray.
 * ui.py: Check $PKEXEC_UID in addition to $SUDO_UID for opening a browser.
 * apport/report.py: report if LD_PRELOAD and LD_LIBRARY_PATH are set. Thanks
   James Hunt.
 * apport-valgrind: Cleanly exit on keyboard interrupts. Thanks Kyle Nitzsche.
 * debian.py: Fix "string payload expected" crash when building the report.
   Thanks Dmitry Shachnev. (Debian #698010)
 * Move shared_libraries() and links_with_shared_library() from hookutils into
   fileutils, so that we can use it from apport-valgrind. Thanks to Kyle
   Nitzsche for the initial patch.
 * fileutils.shared_libraries(): Filter out virtual "linux-vdso" from result.
   Thanks Kyle Nitzsche.
 * apport-valgrind: Fix path to debug symbols in the sandbox.
 * ui.py, get_desktop_entry(): Fix for Python 2.
