It's not that clear what's happening ("works into space" & friends)
but if I get it right, reportbug in Urwid interface can't launch
external browser: is that correct? If so, then I have some questions
for you:

- does launch browser works for other UIs (text & gtk2)?
- do you have xdg-utils installed? reportbug uses xdg-open to launch urls
- does this command line launch a browser? python -c "import
webbrowser; webbrowser.open('http://google.com')"
- are you running in a text-only env, so without a GUI?
