Package: reportbug
Version: 4.12.1
Severity: important
Tags: squeeze

Earlier today I twice attempted to file a does-not-build bug against freetype.
After selecting the severity, reportbug crashed with the following output:

Checking buildd.debian.org for past builds of freetype...
Traceback (most recent call last):
