I'm sure similar bugs are filed all the time by inexperienced users. A 
more intuitive interface (for a new user at least) will save everyone 
time by preventing many misfiled bug reports. Not all users understand 
how debian works and allowing them to get help easier and faster (by 
directing them to debian-user and other such lists and fora) will help 
us all in the end.
