No, the field is there, but I am guilty of not filling it in. It's not
because I am lazy, but because I've no idea how to reproduce the bugs
that abrt detects.

A few times now while I was working, abrt reported that tracker had
crashed. [1] When it first happened I had to look tracker up because I
didn't even know what it was or what it does, so I obviously wasn't
interacting directly with it and I'm never doing the same thing when
it does crash, so I'm not sure what to do beyond reporting the bug and
hoping someone who knows the code can see the problem.
