[Reportbug-maint] Bug#871048: ui-gtk: duplicate list is not clear about steps forward

Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.7
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

The text user interface is pretty clear about what to do with the list
of already reported bugs

    "Is the bug you found listed above [y|N|b|m|r|q|s|f|e|?]?"

with a sane default. The equivalent screen in the gtk user interface
does not contain any instruction on what to do if none match (which
would be pressing next).

I suggest that the "Double-click a bug to retrieve and submit more
information." should be ammended to ", or press 'Next' if none match.";
a patch is attached.
