I filed a bug report. Eventually I was asked to test the new version. I was slow in responding. Now the bug report is expired. It's still a problem. Do I just file a new bug report, or is there something else I should do?

where did you report that bug? – Alexandre Jan 21 '12 at 20:02
I reported the bug in launchpad. ( Bug #743832 ). The bug expired because I didn't respond in time. – stevem Jan 22 '12 at 5:37

I don't see a reason to report a new bug.

As described in that bug report, you should perform further tests, post the results and then you can change its status. I suggest you use New if the bug persists or Invalid if it has been fixed in new Ubuntu release.
