Package: reportbug
Version: 5.1.1
Severity: important

When I configure reportbug with the command

reportbug --configure

and select the gtk2 interface, it comes to an segmentation fault after
reportbug showes me the current bugs of a selected package.

The following error message appears:

assertion failed: (y1 < y2)
Segmentation fault

To send this report, I had to chance the ui from gtk2 to urwid!
