DrKonqui appearance (was: Re: New KMessageBox Style )

Hi all,

It would be great if DrKonqui actually could just hide to the user the crash 
reason and backtrace, just inform that the application has finished 

The ideal thing would be to have a text box for the user indicating what 
he/she was doing, of course only visible if a valid backtrace could be 
recovered. Then a "Send Inform To Developers" button or something like that.

The user only needs to fill a text box with the steps he/she followed for it 
to crash. Additionally it would be nice if somehow one can see the backtrace 
directly (as it does now, with a checkbox).

So, I agree that going to bugs.kde.org for filling a bug just pushes users 
down for not filling the bug... since it "takes more than 5 min".

The crash handler knows everything (version, component, comments (the text 
box), backtrace), so it can create automatically an entry on bugs.kde.org 
without user interaction.

After that, DrKonqui can show something like "Thig bug has been filed, and you 
can check its situation by visiting http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=XXX" 
for instance.
