Description Michal Hlavinka 2011-05-19 15:17:35 UTC
Description of problem:
ABRT should help users without much knowledge to report problems with some apps, but when app crashes, sometimes abrt deletes core file and just reports:

> abrtd: Corrupted or bad dump foo (res:N), deleting

"res:N" is not helping to identify why abrt does not process that crash and just deletes core file. It makes support difficult

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
unknown, just wait till some app crashes and abrt deletes core file
Actual results:
reason obfuscated :
> abrtd: Corrupted or bad dump foo (res:N), deleting

I've seen res:1,2,4 so far

Expected results:
reason explained

Fixed in git:

commit 26a0f776d32d0d5be2e15abe781adf5a830c24cc

    abrtd: always explain why we delete "corrupted" dir. Closes rhbz#706131.

    We were almost always explaining it, except for the case when
    'post-create' was failing silently.
