[darcs-users] darcs patch: Resolve issue1402: don't "phone home" about bugs.

On encountering a bug, Darcs used to "phone home" to find out if it
was the latest version.  If it wasn't, it would tell the user to
upgrade instead of reporting bugs.

This turns out to be rather unreliably (see the transcript below), so
instead just direct users to a wiki article that gives lots of details
on how to report a good bug.

$ darcs show bug
darcs: bug in darcs!
This is actually a fake bug in darcs. at src/Darcs/Commands/ShowBug.lhs:57 compiled Jan 23 2009 05:51:41
I'm unable to check http://darcs.net/maintenance to see if this version is supported.
If it is supported, please report this to bugs at darcs.net
If possible include the output of 'darcs --exact-version'.
$ env -u http_proxy darcs show bug
darcs: bug in darcs!
This is actually a fake bug in darcs. at src/Darcs/Commands/ShowBug.lhs:57 compiled Jan 23 2009 05:51:41
You can check to see if this bug is already known at http://bugs.darcs.net/
If it is not, please report this to bugs at darcs.net
If possible include the output of 'darcs --exact-version'.
