[Reportbug-maint] Bug#642414: reportbug GUI hangs

Package: reportbug
State: installed
Automatically installed: no
Version: 6.2.1
Priority: standard
Section: utils

When I launch reportbug from the shell with the command 'reportbug',
enter the package-name as 'reportbug' and click 'Continue' it hangs.

Another way I can make it hang is: Launch reportbug, click on some
other window so that reportbug loses focus. On trying to click
reportbug again, it is found to be hung.

Adding some outputs from my system, in case it helps. In case any more
information is required, please let me know.
