Bug Description

if i upload a crash report from apport, the exception is often very long, so the far end, often the distinctive part, does not fit into the rather small text entry box in the first launchpad page I am direct to. This makes it hard to tell straight away if the bug is a dupe.

The dupe search only handles summaries at the moment. It doesn't scale (server-wise) for inputting large amounts of text, so making it bigger won't help.

This is causing needless dupes for Ubuntu. We should fix this as part of our UI updates this cycle.

It's just a trivial UI change to make the input element on the dupe finder wider.

We should also include the summary we're searching for so that we can compare against the dupe results, since you can't see the summary you entered until you click the "no, I need to file a bug" link.

Bug 358508 notes a better fix for this, but the above would be a nice and easy step in the right direction until we can do the more involved, better fix.
