When the traceback dialog pops up, it gives you the option to either save to a
floppy drive (if you have one), or scp to another machine (if your network is
up). Failing either of those, you can copy down the beginning part of the
traceback and paste it into this bug by hand to give us a starting point, or
take a picture and attach it.
