[Reportbug-maint] Bug#553172: reportbug: leaves me stuck in the menu after clicking the "back" button

Package: reportbug
Version: 4.8
Severity: normal


I am using the GTK-UI of reportbug.

Consider I want to file a bug report against package "foo", so I run "reportbug foo", enter the short description, select a severity, do not select any tags and finally write the bug report (just as I do it now).

After clicking on the "next" button I have choice to "submit the bug report via email" or do anything else with it (there is a long list of buttons) among others "Add tags". I consider adding a tag, but the only choices I have are "l10n" and "patch" (see #524511). Since neither of both fit to my bug report and there is no button for "no tags", I chose to click the "back button". 

Now I am stuck in a greyed out menu where I cannot select anything else than "Cancel" and "back". I can click "back" several times and then return to the menu by clicking "next" several times, but I cannot send the bug report via email anymore. This option is greyed out as are all the others: I am stuck.
