Package: reportbug
Version: 4.11
Severity: important

Few minutes ago i posted two bug report using reportbug:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=576113  and
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=576115  But which was very
nicely formated in the reportbug. After submiting them everything collapsed to
giant single line, which was then broken into 72 char lines.  This is
distaster.  BTW. This bug report should contain 7 distinct paragraphs.
