Package: reportbug
Version: 4.10
Severity: minor

Why do you not allow ^C interrupts to quit the program immediately?
Why do you require the user to hit a RET in order for his ^C's to be recognized?
$ reportbug
Select mode: [novice]^C^C^C^C^C^C^C RET
reportbug: exiting due to user interrupt.

Many users won't know the RET secret, or "^Z kill %", and will end up
stuck and need to kill their whole shell window etc.

this seems to no longer happen, hence closing.
