This issue seems to have occurred to me today (and several times
previously) - when I returned to my computer after a while (the screen
had entered power saving mode), the gnome-shell process (on XWayland)

Neither after logging in to gnome-shell / Xwayland nor after logging out
and back into gnome-shell / Xorg was I prompted to submit a bug report
about it, even though there was /var/crash/_usr_bin_gnome-
shell.1000.crash. Killing and restarting whoopsie and update-notifier
did not change it. Manually generating and submitting the report using
apport-cli /var/crash/_usr_bin_gnome-shell.1000.crash    did succeed for
me, however (however the automation to do so failed).

  apport does not upload wayland or gnome-shell crash data

Status in apport package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
   uname -a

  Linux smeagol 4.15.0-34-generic #37-Ubuntu SMP Mon Aug 27 15:21:48 UTC

  Description:  Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
  Release:      18.04

  In trying to upload .crash data for bug 1789962 "gnome-shell segfaults
  in Wayland when display is turned off while Kodi running" I determined
  that apport-cli and friends were never able to upload the .crash
  files. The URL where they should appear is:

  Earlier, I did upload the .crash files directly and was told by the
  defect reviewer that:

  _usr_bin_Xwayland.1000.crash: Stack trace mostly unreadable (missing symbols)
  _usr_bin_gnome-shell.1000.crash: Stack trace is missing

   You can see the other bug for details, here is the last comment that I added 
(so far):

  I deleted all entries in /var/crash and /var/lib/whoopsie.
  I recreated the problem

  ls -l /var/crash

  sudo cat /var/lib/whoopsie/whoopsie-id


  Checked the URL:

  No entries since 08/11. None for wayland, gnome-shell or Kodi.
  I checked for over 5 minutes.

  So perhaps something is going bad on my end, but I just don't know
  what or how to  debug.
