Package: reportbug
Version: 6.2
Severity: normal


posting followups to spme bugs is broken with new reportbug. Thought
that the bug is in no way special and reportbug is completely broken but
followups to some other bugs work.

To reproduce:
$ reportbug reportbug
f sav

(1-21/166) Is the bug you found listed above [y|N|b|m|r|q|s|f|e|?]? f
Enter the search pattern (a Perl-compatible regular expression)
or press ENTER to exit: sav
 Bugs with severity normal: 1 report
  1) #626656  reportbug: saved temporary file not very useful

 Bugs with severity wishlist: 1 report
  2) #328531  reportbug: provide option to continue with saved report
(1-2/2) Is the bug you found listed above [y|N|b|m|r|q|s|f|u|t|e|?]? 1
