It's not a function, that's just the name of whatever widget you're connecting the accelerator to. I've revised it to be clearer.

comment Apport-gpu-error-intel.py crash
True, this may result in making it more difficult for people with real hangs to report them, but at least it'll stop the popups for people who aren't having hangs.

Apport is disabled in the release already, so this would have no effect afaik.

comment Laptop screen blank after login when external monitor is not connected
That would make sense but no, it should be just "DISPLAY=:0". It's possible to run more than one X-server at the same time, in which case each would have a different DISPLAY number for each server. But when you're running just one, as you do in an ordinary desktop, it's just display number 0, so DISPLAY=:0.

comment What should I do when Ubuntu freezes?
If your video driver is using kernel modesetting (KMS), it's unlikely this will be sufficient to fix lockups, you have to use sysrq or power cycle. (Go ahead and try C-A-B, it obviously can't hurt; it does work when an app (like compiz/unity) is stuck, rather than X itself, however other answers on this page would be better in this case). But when it doesn't work, now you know why. :-)
