Translate message with apostrophe deny update

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

In Asturian language (ast), Update-manager not update when I push the button Install.

In english or spanish updates!

I was debugging the application.
The error is when the update command is created in run_synaptic method:

The asturian list for the command is this:
['/usr/bin/gksu', '--desktop', '/usr/share/applications/update-manager.desktop', '--', '/usr/sbin/synaptic', '--hide-main-window', '--non-interactive', '--parent-window-id', '39845891', '-o', 'Synaptic::closeZvt=true', '--progress-str', 'Por favor, aguarde; esto pue llevar un tiempu.', '--finish-str', "L'autualizaci\xc3\xb3n complet\xc3\xb3se", '--set-selections-file', '/tmp/tmp4YBL1S']

The apostrophe of "L'autualiza..." break the update command for terminal, and update-manager not update!

 "L'autualiza..." is the translation for asturian language:

Update-manager never update when a tranlate message has an apostrophe!!!
I thing this is a high or critical bug!
Best regards!

Thanks for your bugreport.

What version of ubuntu do you run? And what version of gksu? We fixed a quoting problem like this a while ago, I wonder if it has come back.

I didn't know the gksu now, I need go to home ;) (In 8 hours I will put it).
Best regards.

What's happen with this bug? Why is "incomplete"?
I change the translation (I remove the apostrophe) for works the Update manager in asturian, but the bug persist.
Please, change it to Confirme! Thanks very much!

This should be fixed in the intrepid version (and later ones) of gksu
