Rosanne and you have a good point, but I would restrict it the limit to four lines.  You should be able to describe a valid bug in that space.  Anything more, and it becomes an attachement.

This would take care of the log file that was dropped in one bug and the 'I can't figure this out so here's five screenshots' in another.

+1 to the limit for my vote.
