Package: reportbug
Version: 4.10.2
Severity: normal

I just noticed that I have lots of old empty files in /var/tmp. Here is a subset:

0 gjots2.bug
0 gjots2.bug~
0 gnash.bug
0 gnome-mplayer.bug
0 gnugo.bug
0 gosmore.bug
0 gringotts.bug
0 gringotts.bug~
0 gtk+2.0.bug
0 gtk+2.0.bug~
0 gtk2-engines-xfce.bug
0 gtk-qt-engine.bug
0 gv.bug

I'm pretty sure this must have come from my use of reportbug?
