Bug Description

Binary package hint: aptitude

I ran a routine 'sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade' when this crash happened.

Only difference is that I had added a 'karmic' PPA for global menu to see if works in Lucid. I removed the PPA after I made sure global menu package does work. That was the last 'aptitude' related changes I made before the crash.
