Consider Changing the Subject of Bug Reports (was Re: [BUG]UndefinedObject(Object)>>error:)

I want to point out to everyone that some of the automatically generated
subjects that the debugger provides are not only less than useful for us
humans, but also a problem for BFAV2.  I haven't checked to be sure but
I'm almost certain that this thread will be completely hidden due to the
fact that another with this exact name was closed some time ago.  The
only way BFAV2 has to reliably group messages into a thread is by
comparing titles.  This is just about the #1 most common bug report
title.  There are in fact many seperate conversations over a span of
years contained by the thread with this name, IIRC.

Whenever you submit a bug report please look at the subject of the
report and consider whether it is reasonably unique and if it
communicates.  Perhaps something should be added to the UI for bug
report sending to suggest this so it will more likely to be considered
at the point in time where it matters.
