Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.7
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

on my system reportbug does not start from the menu. This problem already existed in 7.1.6,
maybe even in earlier versions 7.1.X, I am not sure about that.
The same problem also arose some time last year with older versions but got solved in the meantime.

The command in menu is reportbug --exit-prompt --ui gtk2
Using this command in terminal I get 
Ignored bogus setting for --ui: gtk2
like in bug #653183 except that in my case python-gtk2 is installed.
