Package: reportbug
Version: 3.44
Severity: normal

reportbug attaches to every report the status of those packages the
offending program depends on, but the informations are shown trimming
the text width to 79 characters.

Funny things happen if package names/versions are overwhelming long
(see the attached file for a reportbug run against openoffice, in
particolar the openoffice.org suggests)
