[Reportbug-maint] Bug#531672: reportbug: hangs when called from debian-bug.el on xserver-xorg-video-intel package

Package: reportbug
Version: 4.4
Severity: important

Trying to report a bug with debian-bug from Emacs against the
xserver-xorg-video-intel package, the reportbug process hangs with
Emacs saying "Getting package information from reportbug...".

reportbug then hogs a lot of CPU but does not finish.

This happens consistently with the xserver-xorg-video-intel package,
but it works normally with other packages. Also when running reportbug
from the command line, I can report bugs against
xserver-xorg-video-intel too.
