Package: reportbug
Version: 4.12
Severity: important

Hi there!

It seems that reportbug does not want to work with c-l-c:
luca at gismo:~$ reportbug --template common-lisp-controller
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/reportbug", line 2082, in <module>
  File "/usr/bin/reportbug", line 1034, in main
    return iface.user_interface()
  File "/usr/bin/reportbug", line 1690, in user_interface
    conffiles, self.options.nocompress)
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.5/reportbug/utils.py", line 644, in get_changed_config_files
    for (filename, md5sum) in conffiles:
ValueError: too many values to unpack
luca at gismo:~$

Since I cannot reproduce it in a clean sid chroot nor on my virtual sid
(default Debian installation), I guess this has something to do with my
setup (up-to-date sid).  However, this is the first time reportbug gives
such an error and I am a bit lost.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
