Change working to explain private description means private attachment (v1)

When trying to create a private attachment using enter_bug.cgi, you have to check the "Initial Description is Private" checkbox in order to make the attachment private. This is not obvious to the end user the way it is described. One option would be to have a separate "Private" checkbox in the attachment section that makes the attachment private even if the user doesn't want to make the description private. The other option would be to change the text to describe that making the description private also makes any attachments private.

Bugzilla 3.2 is restricted to security bugs only. Moreover, this bug is either assigned to nobody or got no traction for several months now. Rather than retargetting it at each new release, I'm clearing the target milestone and the bug will be retargetted to some sensible release when someone starts fixing this bug for real (Bugzilla 3.8 more likely).
Target Milestone: Bugzilla 3.2 → ---

New patch that is no longer out of date. Simple change.

Change wording to explain private description means private attachment (v3)

Changed from "Any attachments" to just "Attachment" since we can only add one attachment at a time currently.

Let's go with something slightly different that combines the two thoughts into one sentence.

Possible choices:
Make description and any added attachment private (visible only ...
Make description and any new attachment private (visible only ...
... something else?
