Package: reportbug
Version: 6.5.1
Followup-For: Bug #758619

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
	Trying to report a bug on another package (pidgin-skype), which curiously fails with the exact same error message.
        Saw this exact same error "unable to unlock mutex" for the first time yesterday in pidgin and now in reportbug.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
	I configured reportbug to run in GUI mode.

   * What was the outcome of this action?
        reportbug crashes with "Attempt to unlock mutex that was not locked"

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
	reportbug starting
