[Reportbug-maint] Bug#495018: reportbug: querybts does not display the last page of bug reports

Package: reportbug
Version: 3.44
Severity: normal

Normally, typing N (which is the default selection) will display the next
page of bug reports. However, the last page of bug reports is not displayed.

For instance, live-helper currently has 19 bugs. When running querybts, only
13 bugs are displayed. The remaining bug reports can only be accessed by
typing their associated number, even though the program claims there are
more. Trying to display the next page quits the program.

(1-13/19) What would you like to do next [N|m|r|q|f|?]? N

An even better example can be seen by querying the package sl. There is one
bug report, but querybts does not display this.
