Description (updated)

As I have said in ,  Bugzilla's new and nice behavior (since 4.2.5) of rejecting reports against disabled versions brings a new usability problem to DrKonqi: users spend value time in downloading debug symbols, generating the backtrace, writing all information he/she can recall, but in the end only to find an error dialog telling them (in a not so clear and friendly way) that won't accept his/her report. 

I would propose making version checking the very first step in the reporting assistant: a perfect bug report against an outdated version is still useless. 

The patch has been created for sometime and works, but unfortunately I don't have much time for coding since then, so it is not as good as what I have planned to make it to be. Nevertheless, I think it is still a good improvement of the current situation.

This addresses bug 315073.
