Well, it said that communication with SMTP timed out and saved the
report to a temp-file (like it should). Seeing this, I resubmitted the
report with my regular MUA, but minutes later an ACK for the
reportbug-mail came in, producing two identical bugs which I had to
merge then.

I'm very unsure that I will be able to reproduce this behaviour any
time again, but if so, I'll open a bug then.
