Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.5
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

* What led up to the situation?
* What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or ineffective)?

I was trying to report a bug / regression on linux kernel 4.1 -> 4.2 using
reportbug (gtk)

$ reportbug linux-image-4.2.0-1-amd64

* What was the outcome of this action?

When I come to the sceen saying "gathering additional information (this may
take a while)" the following output occurs on the terminal:
> Include network configuration and status from this computer?
And reportbug won't continue.

* What outcome did you expect instead?
Being able to continue :)

- Tim
