No, I dont have any firm proof of that. I sometimes saw "the" resolved
stacktraces where the linenumbers were off for the version of the source I was
looking at -- but then again this has to be expected when there are different
versions affected by the same crash (Im blissfully ignorant about how apport
matches those as "the same" though anyway).

FWIW, I rarely look at errors.ubuntu.com for well reproducable bugs -- those
are better judged by looking at the reproduction scenario anyway. So the ones
Im interested in on Errors are always the somewhat tricky ones and hardly those
that are a good base for checking if errors.ubuntu.com does the right thing.

Best,

Bjoern
