Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.3
Severity: normal
Tags: newcomer

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

I reported a bug via the graphical UI of Reportbug.

I entered a summary of the bug and clicked on Continue.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

The wizard step for entering the bug details opened immediately.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

Like in the text UI, there should be an additional step to check for existing
duplicate bug reports.
