Bug Description

Binary package hint: file-roller

$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 8.10
Release: 8.10

$ apt-cache policy file-roller
Installed: 2.24.1-0ubuntu2

Expected: Encrypted archive created
What happened: Failed with "null"

This is with a default apt-get install of "p7zip". When trying to create an encrypted 7z archive with file-roller it aborts with error null. This doesn't mean very much. It can be fixed by installing p7zip-full.
