Bug#542449: printable characters are rejected by debbugs retitle

Package: debbugs
Severity: normal

I have also experienced this bug. Text with typographically-correct
quotes happens to be the trigger, but it would seem likely that other
characters will also be inappropriately rejected (with an incorrect
message about “unprintable characters”).

I disagree with the ‘minor’ severity: this bug makes it impossible to
set a correct bug report title if, for example, the title *discusses*
text in non-ASCII as the summary of the bug. Don't worry, though: I'm
not going to start a game of severity ping-pong.
