I believe it would cut the number of dupes, if after filling in the new bug form and clicking "Submit Bug Report", the system would compare the new entry with existing bugs and list similar ones to the user, where he can decide to go on with a new bug or just add a comment to an existing one.

Reasons : 
 - (at least myself) users tend to use diffferent words for searching existinbg bugs, than they use in their new bug report
 - some don't even botehr searching for duplicates before submitting new ones


Reproducible: Always
