Right. There've been times where it hasn't done this properly and that's
when you used to get empty reports from abrt, but that's much less
likely to happy with current code; it's better at making sure the
debuginfos get installed, and also complains a lot more before letting
you file a report with an incomplete backtrace than it used to.
