The best way to report a bug about Ubuntu is using apport, which is included in every install of Ubuntu. This can be used by going to an application's "Help" menu and choosing "Report a Problem" or in a terminal by executing the command 'ubuntu-bug' and the name of the package you want to report a bug about. For example, to report a bug about python-launchpad-bugs use the command 'ubuntu-bug python-launchpad-bugs.'

For more information about this process see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs.
