Dear Maintainer,
The text given when entering the description:
Briefly describe the problem (max. 100 characters allowed). This will be the bug email subject, so keep the summary as concise as possible, for
example: "fails to send email" or "does not start with -q option specified" (enter Ctrl+c to exit reportbug without reporting a bug).
...is incorrect, since pressing Ctrl+c at this stage does nothing.
