Hi.

When new report is created the `perlbug` suggest file name:


    Name of file to save message in [perlbug.rep]:


But in case this file already exists it is overwrited without notice.

    Name of file to save message in [perlbug.rep]:

    Message saved.



There should be some warning about that or it should suggest
unexisting file name.
For example: perlbug2.rep
