Every time that I would like to help in debugging - ABRT were a big help until now. Looks like ABRT gone mad in reporting module, and libreport & glibc marked by daily as buggy - and doesn't want to send any kind of report even it's completely and properly set, just marking as crash, an counts up as problem happened.

The question is how can I set ABRT back to factory setup, and clean this rubbish content that causing possibly this garbage. How can I find out that what made this madness inside the report module? What should I delete manually? There is no switch as like in yum - the clean all command?

Try reinstalling abrt* using yum reinstall abrt.

Reinstallling not used at all. I did complete yum autoremove abrt-desktop - witch is an virtual package, and deletes every leaf of packages. I try clean home folders, and then reinstall. I hope nothing left from the garbage. Btw in the removing process I have seen postun faliure - warning: %postun(abrt-gui-libs-2.2.1-2.fc20.x86_64) scriptlet failed, signal 7 Non-fatal POSTUN scriptlet failure in rpm package abrt-gui-libs-2.2.1-2.fc20.x86_64. Should I report this too? Umm, btw this way too many postun faliure is can cause by RPM DB errors locally?

Option 1: Delete the "garbage" (that's what I did)

Just delete using yum erase abrt* or if you want to be on the safe side, sudo systemctl disable abrt.

Option 2: Check out /etc/abrt/abrt.conf

vi /etc/abrt/abrt.conf and edit to your liking. Also, you may want to try ShortenedReporting = yes if in GNOME. Set max size here MaxCrashReportsSize = 1000 #MB.
