Maybe making the description mandatory, and stating (if it not stated)
somewhere that the users should try to reproduce the problem. Currently
submitting the bt is maybe a bit easy, means that bt alone is sometimes
useful, but most of the time it is hard to debug it without more input.
If the problem is showstopping then producing repro should be fairly
easy (if the user is not that lazy, but most of them are too lazy to
bother, unfortunately).

Wait, until first bug will be fixed.
Thanks :)
