Package: discover
Version: 2.0.7-2
Severity: minor

Discover stores and reads the crash file from /var/lib/discover, but
that location could or could not be mounted (for example, if /var would
be a mountpoint). Usually the mounted state is consistent across reboots
etc though, so it usually doesn't matter too much.

However, cluttering the mountpoint /var with directories & files when
/var is still to be mounted is not very clean, and it could happen that
sometimes /var is, and sometimes isn't mounted. Best would be IMHO to
use /discover-modprobe.crash or something in an always-present
directory, as it's just a very temporary file. Alternatively
/var/lib/discover could be created by the package, and /var/lib/discover
used if it exists, and fallbackup to /discover-modprobe if it doesn't.
This will at least prevent cluttering up the /var mountpoint.
