That probably explain it.

You do not even have to do that. In a "normal" (by some definition) gnome
when a program crashes (with segfault) bug-buddy is started and you are
asked to make a bug-report. Normally bugs.gnome.org is used but you can
change that to some other known bug-report systems like the one they (and
debian) use. So probably there is a user that does not andurstand that much
about bugs and submit it to the wrong one.

Maybe we should ask the RedHat people to remove debian from the list in
there release of bug-buddy?
