Please look at bug 1685251

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2019-03-25 16:32:44 UTC
This does look like a dupe of that, yeah.

Note if abrt is on the fritz, 'coredumpctl' may possibly be working can try 'coredumpctl list', coredumpctl gdb'...

Discussed during the 2019-03-25 blocker review meeting: [1]

The decision to classify this bug as an "AcceptedFreezeException" was made as this is a fairly prominent crasher that is visible in the live image and so cannot be fixed with an update. Note we will close the bug as a duplicate of the earlier 1685251 (which has a backtrace) and mark that as accepted.
