[Reportbug-maint] Bug#523664: reportbug: --configure option fails with gtk2 interface and no authentication for SMTP server

Package: reportbug
Version: 4.0
Severity: important

When you call the option --configure from the commandline the user interface does 
not accept the enter key to go on with the default settings (old settings) and when 
it comes to the SMTP user name option you have to enter a string before you can 
procede which does not make sense if you don't have a user name for your SMTP server
