Package: reportbug
Version: 4.8
Severity: important

The first time i tried to submit a bug using reportbug (i elected the GDK interface), it crashed, i think right before the screen where you put in a title for the bug -- but perhaps right before the screen where you enter the bug report. it put these messages on the console:
*** glibc detected *** **
Gdk:ERROR:/tmp/buildd/gtk+2.0-2.18.2/gdk/gdkregion-generic.c:1112:miUnionNonO: assertion failed: (r->x1 < r->x2)

(the line "*** glibc detected *** **" might have been printed earlier, before the crash)

i restarted reportbug and tried to re-report the same bug using the same steps, and the problem didn't reoccur.
