The right way of dealing with these issues is to hide the parts which
could breach the privacy by converting the characters there into
something like "xxx" or "***", and leave the rest of the information
intact.  Instead, we consistently take the easy way out by removing
everything, and thus make the Emacs bug reports less and less useful
for investigating the problems.  Too bad.
