Package: reportbug
Version: 3.39-0.1
Severity: minor

Trying to send a bug report with some images attached I miss-typed the
filename, the screen flashed and I got the attach a file menu/dialog again.

There was no indication that it could not find the file or anything similar.

I assumed that it was prompting me to add extra files.  

I spotted the error on the console after I exitted from reportbug.
