Package: reportbug
Followup-For: Bug #672487

Problem still exists in 6.4.4.
I'm reporting 'burp' package, reportbug tries to attach modified files to report.
Crash occures in both cases: "Y" and "N".

*** WARNING: The following configuration files have been modified: /etc/default/burp /etc/burp/burp.conf Send modified configuration files [Y|n|d|?]? y
