how big are X logs? as I can see from [1] it tries to embed the full
log in the bug report, and that can cause problem.

[1] /usr/share/bug/xserver-xorg-video-intel/script

If you remove (reduce) the log (dimensions), do you have more luck?

just to clarify: you *are able* to use reportbug against
xserver-xorg-video-intel from the command line bug *not* from inside
