When submitting a bugreport, reportbug asks to scan the existing
reports. I'm happy to do so. But scanning all reports becomes a tedious
job. E.g. in the install reports, more than 1800 entries are present.
I would appreciate some means to help me find related issues. The "f"
menu option by reportbug seems to look only in the titles of reports
that are currently displayed. So, it allows you to search in the titles
of 20 tickets rather than in 1800 tickets.
A mechanism to filter out major categories of reports would also be
helpful. E.g. I was pretty confident that a particular problem was
specific to "Lenny", and therefore I would like to filter out all
reports not related to "Lenny".
