Hi all,

I get a few exceptions here and there, and after a look at the
stacktrace, one of the devs can usually quickly find and fix the bugs. I
have replaced the ErrorDialog class with ErrorReportDialog to have a
facility for a user to describe what caused the error and send it over
to a high-availability server.

You can see a screenshot of it working here:
(Warning: large, dual monitor screenshot)

Right now, it serves as a drop-in replacement for ErrorDialog. In the
near future, we can get all the stack traces, and perform a simple
frequency analysis to see which of the traces represent bugs and which
of them are just plain ol' exceptions.

I've attached a patch, the submission functionality is stubbed out for
now, the ErrorDialog has been replaced though.
