I just use the bug numbers from the list and go directly to http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=bug_number_here in a browser window not invoked by/controlled by/related to reportbug. Actually, there's less typing than that, because I use konqueror which has a dbug:bug_number_here shortcut. Still, I have no doubt reportbug could be improved. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
