Dear maintainers,

This bug is quite problematic IMO because it allows reportbug to get
into a state where all useful UI elements are disabled, including the
buttons on the final navigation screen (e.g. "Submit the bug report via
email"). At this point, reportbug is unusable and all info inputed in
the current session is essentially lost to the average user.

I found this bug specifically by clicking the "Choose a mailer to edit
the report" button on the final navigation screen and then hitting Back.
(In my case, I tried that option only to learn that my mail client isn't
in the mailers list, and in the process broke the bug reporter!)
