Package: reportbug
Version: 4.12.6

When I attempt to file a bug report with reportbug (GTK mode) it
crashes at random times during the wizard with this output to STDOUT:

$ reportbug
/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/reportbug/ui/gtk2_ui.py:476: GtkWarning:
gtk_widget_event: assertion `WIDGET_REALIZED_FOR_EVENT (widget,
event)' failed
  gtk.main ()
PangoWarning: pango_layout_set_width: assertion `layout != NULL'
  gtk.main ()
PangoWarning: pango_layout_get_extents: assertion `layout != NULL'
  gtk.main ()
PangoWarning: pango_layout_get_line_count: assertion `layout != NULL'
  gtk.main ()
Floating point exception

My reportbug config:
