Thanks for the bugreport.
There is no way in the current configuration querybts would provide new
information. querybts only displays information and reportbug allows to
provide new information.
Reportbug and querybts share some libraries. That's why the message "x -
Provide extra information" is displayed. Some cases were not managed in
querybts and the use should be warned about it.
Here is a patch to solve this issue with "x" option, solving also an
issue with "o" option. The patch displays the last menu in querybts
again if "x" or "o" option is chosen, also warning the user these
options are not available using querybts directly.
> querybts does not let me provide extra information for a bug report anymore.
> How to reproduce:
> - Run "querybts 418708"
> - Hit 'q' to quit the pager.
> Now the prompt says:
> "What do you want to do now? [N|x|o|r|b|q|?]?"
> - Hit '?' and [Enter] to see the following:
> --------- snip ----------
> N - (default) Show next message (followup).
> x - Provide extra information.
> o - Show other bug reports (return to bug listing).
> r - Redisplay this message.
> b - Launch web browser to read full log.
> q - I'm bored; quit please.
> ? - Display this help.
> What do you want to do now? [N|x|o|r|b|q|?]?
> --------- snip ----------
> - Now that we know that 'x' lets us provide extra information, we
> hit 'x'. Instead of letting us provide extra information, querybts
> simply quits with exit code 0.
> Providing extra information used to work in earlier versions, AFAIR.
