[Reportbug-maint] Bug#577569: reportbug: Unable to send a report with multiple paragraphs

Package: reportbug
Version: 4.11
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

I am unable to file a report which has multiple paragraphs using the GTK+ UI. I
think it's because of the correction associated with the bug #562878 which
overdoes the wrapping.

I attach a patch. This report is sent from the patched version.  Hopefully You
will see multiple paragraphs divided by empty lines.
