Main suggestion meantime was to continue dialog with user directly via 
abrt. It fill it via abrt and save credential. If I request something 
from user - abrt should show it information for user and provide 
possibility (at least) answer immediately.

Furthermore, step to reproduce also is very important, and may be we 
should enforce users fill it? For example put it in separate required 
field and check it is not empty (or may be some minimal heuristic 
against fill it like '123', 'qwerty', 'qaz' like: longer than 10 
symbols, contains at least 2 spaces).
