In an Emacs -Q (current 23 CVS build, under NS) and also in Emacs -Q -nw, executing this:
(add-hook 'text-mode-hook (defun turn-on-longlines-mode () (longlines-mode 1)))
And then doing M-x report-emacs-bug RET leads to a freeze (non C-g'able in NS port at least) just after the subject line has been entered.
Note that longlines mode used to be in the menu, implemented using text-mode-hook, so I would recommend this be fixed before release...

Here is a minimal .emacs, after which Send Bug Report freezes up for me.

OK, care sharing your .emacs? This would be quite important to fix.
My default mail client is gmail. If I want to send a bug report in Carbon emacs (currently 22.3.1) everything works until it is time to send the mail, at which point I copy the report to gmail. In the CVS version I am able to enter text for "Bug Subject" but when I hit return everything freezes until I kill the program.
Also, you could try this:
(setq send-mail-function 'sendmail-send-it)
This will allow you to just send the e-mail off with C-c C-c. It will use the "from" address as shown in Emacs.
Note that while this should be OK, your e-mail will be appear more suspicious to spam filters if it is sent from a "dynamic IP" (home broadband) account. And of course it won't end up in your Sent Mail folder.
