Sure, for me bugs should be filled upstream.

But here is an extract from /usr/share/doc/debian/bug-reporting.txt (same text in http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting)

How to report a bug in Debian

Don't file bugs upstream
If you file a bug in Debian, don't send a copy to the upstream software maintainers yourself, as it is possible that the bug exists only in Debian. If necessary, the maintainer of the package will forward the bug upstream.

The title says "how to report a bug in Debian..."
For me a bug in a KDE application shipped by Debian is a "bug in Debian", so I should use bugreport ;)

I think I misinterpreted this documentation, but we should say something like :
"Fill bugs upstream unless it seams debian related."

I'm probably not alone thinking like that, most bugs in the BTS are upstream bugs.

Thanks for your responses and best regards
