I don't think it is a problem to start the editor in the background.
However, *sending* the report is done by the bug.report function after
editing. If you background the editor, you'd be sending the report
before writing it... On crippled OS's we cannot figure out how to send
mail, so this doesn't happen.

What one really needs is a threaded version of R, but that is somewhat
into the future...
