Default Bug submission fails - ttf-msttrcorfonts-installer

I'm having weird problems with this.

I try to use scripts to manage the packages for me, so that I can keep
track of what I have and why.
I just added the playonlinux package, dragging in a slew of other
stuff, including the package
ttf-mscorefonts-installer
or at least that's what Synaptic called it.

The apt-get run was executing under script(1) in an xterm so that I
could refer back to what happened. But what happened was quite
unexpected: the terminal color changed and I was suddenly looking at a
blueish window that appeared to be (part of) a character-based dialog
box. All progress stopped, but I could not find a way to respond to
the dialog. I had to reboot before I could get synaptic to even try
the installation manually (it kept complaining about inability to get
locks).

I got it installed, but wanted to submit a bug report. Things got
even more weird. The browser that ubuntu-bug brought up is calling
the package "msttcorefonts", which synaptic does not seem to know
about. But the biggie is that I've been looking at a message: "Please
wait while bug data is processed. This page will refresh every 10
seconds until processing is complete." for a half-hour now, and this
is not the first time I've tried. I'm making a wild guess that the
bug stuff is also having problems with that package.

SO: is there a good way to report a bug about bug-reporting that does
not involve ubuntu-bug? Or maybe I could use ubuntu-bug if I could
figure out what package it belongs to (synaptic does not know about
"ubuntu-bug" either). There's probably an app for that, just not one
whose name I remember.

Not sure whether you wish to submit a bug report for
ttf-mscorefonts-installer or apport.

$ ubuntu-bug ttf-mscorefonts-installer

does end up at
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/msttcorefonts.

I think the confusion is that the ttf-mscorefonts-installer is built
from msttcorefonts:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/msttcorefonts
--> http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/ttf-mscorefonts-installer

If you 'sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts'
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Note, selecting 'ttf-mscorefonts-installer' instead of 'msttcorefonts'

I suspect because it's a download installer (cat
ttf-mscorefonts-installer) that it's similar to the Adobe Flash
installer: flashplugin-nonfree/flashplugin-installer/flashplugin-downloader.

Before you file a bug report, you might try asking at:
https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/msttcorefonts
first.
