If you end up with an fatal signal (seg.fault, bus error etc.), you will get a message that says:
"We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help diagnose the problem, but since we have already crashed, something is definitely wrong and this may fail."

This message should be improved.

How to repeat:
See signal_handler.cc

Suggested fix:
David/Stefan/Paul suggests:

Attempting to collect some information that could help diagnose the problem. As this is a crash and something is definitely wrong, the information collection process might fail.

Fixed in 5.7.6. Cosmetic change. No changelog entry needed.
