Description Milan Crha 2018-07-09 12:08:27 UTC
Bug #1598550 shows a backtrace where is a call to show an error message on console just before call to abort(). I do not see this error message in the ABRT files, though it is one of the most important bits of the crash report, because it can help to identify the issue.

I do not know how wayland package does that, but I recall similar issue with glib2 functions in use, which can (and do) log messages to /var/log/messages, thus the message can be available for ABRT, but maybe only the file itself (or what interface you use to access it) is not saved with the most recent changes yet, thus ABRT misses it.

It would be nice (and helpful) if you could find a way to get really the recent content of /var/log/messages and provide it in the report.
