Thank you for the correction.

So a question arises: which are the other X-Debbugs-... headers?  The
reportbug manual mentions only X-Debbugs-CC, while /etc/reportbug.conf
contains a commented line for X-Debbugs-No-Ack.

Thus, I (erroneously) thought that Package: & Co. were available also
as X-Debbugs-..., which seems to not be the case.  As English isn't my
mother language, is it me or the section at [1] isn't so clear?
Especially the last sentence:

  Finally, if your MUA doesn't allow you to edit the headers, you can
  set the various X-Debbugs- headers in the pseudo-headers.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
