bug#23799: 25.0.90; Replying "no" to send bug report means you cannot later send it

Hit C-c C-c to send a bug report, then reply "no", perhaps because you
want to change something before submitting the report.
Now try C-c C-c again.
You get an error/message saying:
message-send: No methods specified to send by
That's presumably because you never got to the part of the dialog where
it asks you how to send the message.
This is a bug. Just because you used C-c C-c and chose not to send the
message yet is not a reason to no longer give you a means to specify the
"method to send by".
This happens regardless of whether you have changed the "To:" field -
e.g., in response to this message in *Bug Help*:
You invoked the command M-x report-emacs-bug,
but you decided not to mail the bug report to the Emacs maintainers.
If you want to mail it to someone else instead,
please insert the proper e-mail address after "To: ",
and send the mail again using C-c C-c.
And perhaps the message about not having specified a mail method should
be incorporated into *Bug Help*?
It seems that this part of dialoguing with the user (what happens if
s?he says "no") has not been thought through well enough and tested well
