Package: reportbug
Version: 4.6
Severity: important

I was trying to file a bug against apt-utils (for apt-ftparchive), and
"f"iltered on "version". I decided to try "f"iltering again to narrow my
results to just apt-ftparchive bugs. reportbug crashed as soon as I pressed
"f" the second time;

(1-15/35) Is the bug you found listed above [y|N|b|m|r|q|s|f|u|t|?]? f
