[Reportbug-maint] Bug#560369: reportbug thinks message isn't sent when mutt postpones

Package: reportbug
Version: 4.8
Severity: minor


 First of all, sorry if this is a duplicate. Though, that is the reason
why I just postponed the bugreport in the first place instead of sending
it along. reportbug seems to think that it hasn't been sent and gives
this message:

Mutt users should be aware it is mandatory to edit the draft before sending.
Report has not been sent yet; what do you want to do now? [E|q|?]? ?
E - (default) Edit the message.
q - Quit reportbug; will save the draft for future use.
? - Display this help.
Report has not been sent yet; what do you want to do now? [E|q|?]? q

 Not sure what exit status mutt gives on postponing a message but I
guess it should be taken as a positive response too. I'm also not sure
if mutt is actually producing different return codes - and if it is
proper to return 1 on postponed messages; maybe reassigning it to mutt
is the correct thing to do here.

 So long!
