Apparently there is an issue with bughelper or python-launchpad-bugs and python2.6. This can be worked around by using python2.5 instead, for example 'python2.5 bughelper'.

This seems to be a minimal reproducer for this issue.
Also, I can't reproduce this bug on jaunty with python 2.6.2

For me it looks like a result of this change
"""++- Issue #5890: in subclasses of 'property' the __doc__ attribute was
++ shadowed by classtype's, even if it was None. property now
++ inserts the __doc__ into the subclass instance __dict__.

  [ Markus Korn ]
  * fixed incompatibility with python 2.6 in karmic (LP: #396531)
  * fixed test runner, output streams for unittest results now need a flush()
