One thing I hack into OpenSSH's bugzilla is a message above the comment
entry box: "Do not enter patches, source code or long debug traces here.
Please use the Attachments feature instead."

This is borne of frustration of users pasting huge gobs of text into
comments, especially patches. Could you please consider adding a similar
message, or perhaps a automatic warning if a comment is over a certain
number of lines?
