Package: reportbug
Version: 6.5.1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

if reportbug is run from the console (ttyN), it crash if configured to use
GUI. Even if configured to use TUI, the gtk2 error message is produced.
I expect the program should test if graphic environment is available
(the DISPLAY variable is set) and use the text mode if not.
