Sounds like notmuch reply is producing bad JSON for that particular
message. Could you try the following, replacing <message id> with the
message ID of the message you're replying to:

notmuch reply --format=json id:"<message id>" | json_xs -t json-pretty

and see if it complains? The json_xs tool is in the libjson-xs-perl
package in Ubuntu. If you can't get it, run just the notmuch reply
command, and see what it does - the JSON will be hard to read, but if
it's producing an error of some sort you'll see it.
