Package: reportbug
Version: 3.42

I was filling a bug report in urwid mode and reportbug crashed after filling
the bug title:

I'm sorry I don't feel like having done something wrong. So I don't know
whether the crash can be easily reproduced or not. This was the first time I
used reportbug on this system, without any MTA installed, and the target
package (awn-applets-python-core) didn't have any previous bug report. I
don't know if all this information are related to the crash.

I'm using Debian Lenny with python-urwid version
