Abrt doesn't capture traces for segfault type 6

I looked for a component in bugzilla for abrt, and it isn't listed so
I'd like to know where I should file this bug report.

> May 27 13:42:16 dt01 kernel: epiphany[9989]: segfault at fffffffffffff7f0 ip 000000391f474b8c sp 00007fffdf2c4d90 error 4 in libc-2.11.1.so[391f400000+16f000]
> May 27 13:42:18 dt01 abrt[9990]: saved core dump of pid 9989 (/usr/bin/epiphany) to /var/cache/abrt/ccpp-1274992936-9989.new/coredump (54530048 bytes)

Notice the "error 4" part and that abrt captures a backtrace for it.

Notice the "error 6" part and that abrt does not capture a backtrace for it.


The link above says that the error codes are processor dependent.
Maybe there is something generic that can determine whether to attempt
processing a backtrace.

Is this a kernel issue, abrt issue or both?  Where should I file the bug report?
