When a component is not chosen when entering a new bug, the error message displayed is "You must choose a component that corresponds to this bug. If necessary, just guess." Whilst it is important to ensure the reporter does continue, the last fragment of this error message only re-enforces that it is acceptable to just guess. IMO it should direct the user to describecomponents.cgi, or even better, actually display a list of described components for the user to select and continue. It might also be useful to indicate a 'catch all' component which should be used if the reporter can not find an approprite component.
