Default turning off bug-buddy

Is there any way to turn off bug-buddy in Gnome? On one of my systems I
run a full-screen app that occasionally crashes, and when it does,
bug-buddy pops up and since the crashed app covers the entire screen, I
can't see the mouse pointer ti get it into the bug-buddy window to get
rid of it, and since it's a third-party app, bug-buddy is useless
anyway. When this happens, I have to go to one of the text consoles and
issue a "killall bug-buddy" command to recover.

System --> Preferences --> Startup Applications. Uncheck the box in
front of Automatic Bug Reporting Tool.

My bad; I forgot to mention this is on Fedora 10. ABRT hadn't been
introduced yet. I did find the startup applications menu but I didn't
see anything in there that related to bug-buddy.

Yes, I know F10 is past end of life, but this particular box is a major
hassle to upgrade (runs MythTV and several out-of-mainline drivers) and
it's on a very safe network at my house behind a well-maintained
firewall so I think it is safe enough for now. It certainly wouldn't be
worth upgrading just to address this issue.

I had considered the sledge hammer approach but I am concerned about
what else might break if I do that. Perhaps I'll give it a try tonight.

Check your Gnome Session startup apps and see if there's a Bug Buddy
item to uncheck. System>Preferences>Startup Apps.

I mentioned earlier in the thread (but forgot in the first posting) that
this I did find where the startup apps are in F10 but didn't see
anything relating to bug-buddy there.
