Bug Description

Binary package hint: reportbug

I setup reportbug to run in a graphical mode instead of thru the CLI. After starting reportbug and pressing the "Forward" button the program becomes unresponsive. Reportbug will not respond to any pressed buttons and the only way I could terminate the program was by killing the corresponding process. I have tried to reconfigure reportbug to run via the CLI but the program continues to freeze. I have also purged the package and reinstalled it but the program still freezes.

I have upgraded to reportbug 4.12.6ubuntu1 & python-reportbug 4.12.6ubuntu1 and I am still experiencing the crashing/unresponsiveness upon opening the program.

Upstream maintainer refuses and denies there is an issue with reportbug. He claims the bug is Ubuntu specfic since the GTK+ stack in the version of reportbug I'm using is customized by Ubuntu and that no one using Debian has experienced this bug. He refuses to offer any further assistance in investigating anything Ubuntu related.
