Fatal traps and uploading information

I came in this morning to see a "fatal trap 12" on the console. It talked about "pf_state_tree_id_rb_remove_color". I saw an old thread about this, but have a feeling that it might be a different problem.
Upon logging into the web interface, I noticed a button that allows you to submit the crash information. In the text box for submission, it didn't really display much other than a uname -a. Does additional information get submitted? I checked /var/crash, but nothing was in it.
Which kind of brings me to my next question. How do you submit information in a useful manner? I checked the stickies and it seems like nothing really explains how to submit a bug report. Does the web interface submission count? Is there additional information that is needed?
If your machine was stuck at the console at a db> prompt, it didn't do a crash dump that can be submitted.
There is a false positive in the crash dump detection in the GUI on this morning's snapshot, so it probably didn't really have any info to submit.
When a proper crash dump has been done, it will show all of the info in the text box before submitting, and it will be enough to submit that info as-is.
