Package: reportbug
Version: 4.12.6
Severity: normal

I just had the crash as well, when trying to add a CC: e-mail addres, the graphical userinterface of reportbug crashed. Here is what it said:

berny at X60t:~$ reportbug
Gdk:ERROR:/build/buildd-gtk+2.0_2.20.1-2-i386-TNeM25/gtk+2.0-2.20.1/gdk/gdkregion-generic.c:1112:miUnionNonO: assertion failed: (r->x1 < r->x2)

so, lets see whether this works:
berny at X60t:~$ reportbug --ui=text reportbug
