Usually this option is unset (but I did not look very carefully at
the desktop flavour on Maverick): upstream (I *guess* you are
talking about Gnome, but this apply to all upstreams, except KDE)
would rather have bugs reported *on* the distribution and, after
weeding out distro-related problems, upstreamed.
OTOH, you might be talking about KDE -- in other words, *K*Ubuntu.
The Kubuntu flavour has a different requirement: all crashers are to
be reported directly upstream. In this case, yes, you will need the
debug symbols packages also installed.

The Ubuntu maintainers do not provide this mechanism -- bug-buddy is
usually disabled. The Kubuntu maintainers do.
