Re: [Gimp-developer] The new bug report dialog

Perhaps it would help to add the undo stack to the text in the pop-up dialogue.

I just filed four bug reports generated by the new bug report dialog.

The new bug report dialog pops up fairly often, though I haven't filed bugs
for most of the times it's popped up. Are there some guidelines for using
this new pop-up dialog?

For example, for the bug I just filed related to solid noise, searching the
auto-generated text, the word "solid" is on four different lines: lines 101,
144, 393, 436. If I didn't know for sure that this particular bug report
pop-up really was from running the solid noise filter, it's not likely that
I'd have looked at lines 101, 144, 393, and 436 or known what to put in the
subject line of the bug report.

In other words, is there a place in the print-out where people can reliably
look to see what action caused the bug report dialog to pop up, that's
appropriate to put in the subject line, and perhaps appropriate for
searching for duplicate bug reports?

And should people file bug reports for *all* such pop-up bug reports? For
the solid noise bug report, that's reliably repeatable (even though the
filter seems to work just fine). But for the other three bugs I just filed,
I had to search through the text to make a guess as to what actually made
the bug report pop-up appear.
