This bug was fixed in the package jockey - 0.9.4-0ubuntu1

jockey (0.9.4-0ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * New upstream bug fix release:
    - Do not encourage to report package installation failure as
      SystemError, it will appear as a backend crash
    - jockey-gtk: Fix message_type argument to Gtk.MessageBox constructor
    - jockey/ For invalid combinations of LC_MESSAGES and LC_CTYPE, force
      stdout/stderr encoding to UTF-8 instead of C. (LP: #760883)
    - Fix GLib and GObject imports to be compatible with the future pygobject
      3.0. (LP: #829186)
    - jockey/, _driverid_to_handler(): In the case that there are
      multiple matching custom handlers for a DriverID, also check that their
      "package" attribute matches.
    - tests/run: Also support specifying individual test method names
  * Add debian/testpkgs/: Scripts and equivs control files for dummy
    driver packages which are convenient for testing.
  * debian/rules: Call debian/testpkgs/clean to ensure that we don't ship
    build stuff there.
  * data/handlers/{fglrx,nvidia}.py: Prevent crash if
    get_alternative_by_name() returns nothing.
  * jockey/, {install,remove}_package(): Capture apt's stdout/err into
    the log file, to get proper error messages when packages fail to install.
    (LP: #552300).
  * jockey/, install_package(): Avoid raising a SystemError when a
    package fails to install in apt, as this will appear as a crash in Jockey.
    Just point out the error in the log file instead. (LP: #804709)
  * tests/ Update test cases for above change.
  * tests/ Fix apt initialization to work with current apt versions.
  * data/handlers/{fglrx,nvidia}.py: Also show the -updates variants of the
    drivers, which will be updated to newer upstream versions after the
    Ubuntu release. (UbuntuSpec:desktop-o-xorg-stakeholders-request)
