  Apport "Other Problem" option needs expanded functionality

Status in apport package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When you slecet the "Other Problem"  from the kind of problem you want
  to report list you recieve a dialog that says

           "You need to specify a package or a PID. See --help for more

  Here's the problem: 
  1) "ubuntubug -- help" doesn't explain how to get the process ID (PID)
  2)  It makes you think there should be a 'Help' button on the 'No Package 
Selected' dialog

  Some solutions:
  1)  The main Apport window should implement the --WIndow option which would 
allow the user to click on click on any open window to report a bug on that 
  2)   The main Apport window could display the same list of Processes and IDs 
that the System Monitor window displays - thereby allowing the user to select 
the appropriate process from the simply by clicking on the Process Name in the 
window. (see attached image)
  3)   It would be totally awesome if when you could right click on the Process 
Name in the System Monitor window and get a pop-up menu detailing the proces' 
properties - that there could be a menu option there called "Report A Bug" that 
launched apport
