I called emacsclient from debian's reportbug.  After a while thought
that since I had pasted things from an emacs *Help* buffer, in order
to get rid of their underlinings etc. at least to make sure what the
file really looks like, i did C-x C-s C-x C-v, well, first is asks me
if i want to kill the waiting [reportbug command], i say no and
continue on editing until a final C-x # upon which time a *loss*
buffer appears etc. ... etc.  a non expert would have big difficulty
in completing the reportbug process at this point.   please try for
yourself.  me of course found the right buffers and wrote the right
files lucily, but i'm just saying you've set up a danger zone for a newbie.
