Advice on how to report an ubuntu bug

The Ubuntu wiki has a great page on how to report a bug. It includes details of how to install debugging symbol packages (I didn't know these existed, I always headed for the source and compiled a debug build), and detailed gdb instructions.

I also finally learnt a better way to find out which version you are running (usually I look at /etc/issue or /etc/apt/sources), but this:
lsb_release -rd
gives you the numerical release number. Sweet.
