Perhaps what is wrong sometimes is that the Debian person doesn't
package the bug report into an informative and useable professional
format to ease the labor of the upstream maintainer/author?
A clickable URL in the email linking to the relevant BTS entry might
be more useful than a forward, especially if acompanied by a best-try
analysis and/or a patch with a ChangeLog paste-in. (giving credit
where credit is due, of course.)
