Intercept and collect info about crashes

Registered by Martin Pitt on 2005-10-25

Crashes of userspace applications should be detected automatically so the user gets an easy to use frontend for adding information to the problem report and is offered to send the report to our database.

Whiteboard

Proof of concept crash handler works, kernel hook implemented

Review OK - iwj 22.6.06

mdz: Approved 2006-06-22. Just a few formalities: move all of the future work out of the body of the spec and into the future section; specify that the desktop app which receives the report is a special mode of BugReportingTool

pitti: did changes suggested by mdz

2006-08-14: beta available; seeded to ubuntu-desktop, main functionality working, announced to u-d-a

2006-09-04: basic functionality is working stable; does not yet catch some corner cases and is still pretty slow, but these are just bugs. Marking as implemented.
