Package: reportbug
Version: 4.12.6
Severity: normal

I try to report a bug for iceweasel. However reportbug gets stuck
before I can enter the report. The last lines I see are:

How would you rate the severity of this problem or report?

1 critical        makes unrelated software on the system (or the whole system) break, or
                  causes serious data loss, or introduces a security hole on systems where
                  you install the package.
2 grave           makes the package in question unusable by most or all users, or causes
                  data loss, or introduces a security hole allowing access to the accounts
                  of users who use the package.
3 serious         is a severe violation of Debian policy (that is, the problem is a
                  violation of a 'must' or 'required' directive); may or may not affect the
                  usability of the package. Note that non-severe policy violations may be
                  'normal,' 'minor,' or 'wishlist' bugs. (Package maintainers may also
                  designate other bugs as 'serious' and thus release-critical; however, end
                  users should not do so.)
4 important       a bug which has a major effect on the usability of a package, without
                  rendering it completely unusable to everyone.
5 does-not-build  a bug that stops the package from being built from source. (This is a
                  'virtual severity'.)
6 normal          a bug that does not undermine the usability of the whole package; for
                  example, a problem with a particular option or menu item.
7 minor           things like spelling mistakes and other minor cosmetic errors that do not
                  affect the core functionality of the package.
8 wishlist        suggestions and requests for new features.

Please select a severity level: [normal] important

 1 d-i           This bug is relevant to the development of debian-installer.
 2 experimental  This bug only applies to the experimental branch of Debian.
 3 ipv6          This bug affects support for Internet Protocol version 6.
 4 l10n          This bug reports a localization/internationalization issue.
 5 lenny         This bug only applies to the lenny release (Debian 5.0).
 6 lfs           This bug affects support for large files (over 2 gigabytes).
 7 patch         You are including a patch to fix this problem.
 8 sid           This bug only applies to the unstable branch of Debian.
 9 squeeze       This bug only applies to the squeeze release.
10 upstream      This bug applies to the upstream part of the package.
11 none          

Please select tags: (one at a time) [none] 
Gathering additional data, this may take a while...

I waited already for more than 10 minutes but nothing happened (and no,
my machine is not *that* old).
