Bug#398444: Etch: reportbug hangs on BTS query preventing reporting of problems in Etch release

Package: reportbug
Version: 3.30
Severity: important

I am unable to report most bugs with Etch due to reportbug hanging while 
querying BTS.

It works for reportbug (fortunately!) but when I tried to report a kernel 
problem it hung after the message:

Querying Debian BTS for reports on linux-2.6 (source)...

I had the same problem trying to report a kdepim problem.  In that case I 
eventually entered the report into the upstream bug tracker, but this loses
visibility of it as an Etch problem.

I note that there is a newer reportbug in unstable, and some resolved bug
reports which may be related.  However, either this is a different problem or
the fix is not in the testing release -- which pretty much defeats the object
of the testing release.  I run testing so that I can find and report problems!
