Requests to report the crash upstream usually also fall on deaf ears (when
all they'd really need to do is copy&paste the generated text and a link to
the attached backtrace into the upstream bug tracker).
Without some mechanism to either make ABRT file bugs directly upstream or
automatically forward them (in a way which keeps the reporter in the loop,
in the hope that they might actually care!), it's basically useless.
There's no way I can fix the dozens of crashes in Gnash myself.
