Package: reportbug

Version: 6.3
Severity: normal

I have reportbug configured to work with my remote SMTP account.
All works fine when sending reports, but I managed to notice a problem 
when the first connection attempt fails.

If the second attempt succeeds, then reportbug sends two mails instead 
of one to the BTS. Worse, the BTS even assigns differrent numbers, treating 
them as separate issues.

The living example of this failure is located at #649433 - #649434, exactly 
the situation described here.
I don't know, but I suppose if there are two unsuccessful attempts, the third 
may send three reports? I have no idea how to figure this out.

Let me know if you need more details.

NOTE: I didn't know in the first place if this should be filed against 
or the BTS, but since this is the place where it all begins, this would make 
a decent start.

Kind regards,
