Package: reportbug
Version: 4.1
Severity: normal


The script that I use to sent debconf translation to the BTS fails with
reportbug 4.1. I sent #522988 with the same script (reportbug-4.0).

florentin % sh -x bug-po-debconf clamav fr.po.bz2
+ ARGS=2
+ NAME=clamav
+ PO=fr.po.bz2
+ '[' 2 -ne 2 ']'
+ '[' clamav = ' ']'
+ '[' fr.po.bz2 = ' ']'
+ '[' '!' -e fr.po.bz2 ']'
+ reportbug --attach=fr.po.bz2 --offline
--include=/home/florentin/debian/material/po-debconf.txt -s 'clamav:
French debconf templates translation update' --severity=wishlist
--tag=patch --tag=l10n --no-config-files --package-version=N/A clamav
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/reportbug", line 1831, in <module>
        File "/usr/bin/reportbug", line 831, in main
            lib_package = __import__('reportbug.ui', fromlist=[iface])
            UnboundLocalError: local variable 'iface' referenced before

I attach the script.
