Package: reportbug
Version: 4.10.2
Severity: minor

If DISPLAY is not set, reportbug will print a noisy warning:

sascha.silbe at xo15-minimal:~$ reportbug --email sascha-debian-bugs-reportbug-$(date -I)@silbe.org reportbug
/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.5/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:57: GtkWarning: could not open display
  warnings.warn(str(e), _gtk.Warning)
*** Welcome to reportbug.  Use ? for help at prompts. ***

If X isn't available, reportbug should just accept that silently (by not loading the gtk module).
