I sent a bug report (bug 735069) using abrt. I edited the backtrace to replace a username with xxxxxx (which wasn't really that critical; in fact, the same username is found elsewhere in the same bug report). Then I edited the backtrace again and replaced xxxxxx with XXXXXX.
After submitting, I viewed the bug on bugzilla.redhat.com, and there were two copies of the backtrace, one as "backtrace" with the XXXXXX, and one as "backtrace~" with the xxxxxx. I guess that had I edited the backtrace only once, backtrace~ would contain the original text, which I supposedly edited to remove sensitive data.
Abrt used gedit for the editing.
Already fixed in git. Corresponding code fragment is:
if (short_name == '#'
|| (short_name && short_name[strlen(short_name) - 1] == '~')
//log("Excluded (editor backup file):'%s'", short_name);
