Too late for oneiric, but it's rather important to get this ported for P.

Do you plan to use Qt for sso as well or do you speak about the control panel there?

Hi Seb!

We're not dropping the Gtk UI for sso, so we will be updating it to GTK3.

This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-sso-client - 2.99.4-0ubuntu1

ubuntu-sso-client (2.99.4-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * New upstream release:
    - Execute the UI as a separate process from the sso main thread
      (LP: #919330).
    - Move the ping method from the credentials module to the
      UserManagement interface (LP: #929670).
    - The Gtk UI must handle errors from dbus when calling the backend
      (LP: #929820).
    - Migrated the GTK UI to use GI bindings (LP: #801111).
  * debian/control: added new binary packages as follow:
    - python-ubuntu-sso-client: the python library for the Ubuntu SSO client.
    - python-ubuntu-sso-client.tests: the test suite for the Ubuntu SSO client.
    - ubuntu-sso-client: the Ubuntu SSO client main service. Recommends the
      virtual package ubuntu-sso-client-gui.
    - ubuntu-sso-client-gtk: the GTK+ frontend for the Ubuntu SSO client.
    - ubuntu-sso-client-qt: the Qt frontend for the Ubuntu SSO client.
    - Both ubuntu-sso-client-gtk and ubuntu-sso-client-qt provide the virtual
      package ubuntu-sso-client-gui.
  * debian/rules: remove the rule to avoid installing the Qt bits.
  * debian/patches/00_fix-933039.patch:
    - Make the bin_dir discoverable when running from the system installation
      (LP: #933039).
  * debian/watch: updated milestone to 2.99.4.
  * debian/*.install: installation files for all the new binary packages.
