Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

I went to submit a bug, and Reportbug thankfully found one already submitted. I
replied to that bug to confirm that it still existed in a newer version of the
package. After submission, the program displayed an empty, one-line text field
under text that approximately said "Press ENTER to exit Reportbug." I took no
other action except to press Enter, and no effect was had on the program.
Pressing the "Quit" button still exited the program as normal.

Also, what is the purpose of that text field?
