Apport has actually done that for a long time, and mark these crash
reports with "UnreportableReason". Almost all of the unreportable ones
get uploaded to errors anyway (I'm not particularly happy about that,
but that's the status quo), but we specifically blacklist the ones for
this case (i. e. "binary upgraded underneath you"). Is that broken?
I. e. do you have an example where this actually did get sent to
errors.u.c.? We should fix that ASAP then.
