Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

I was updating from 10.10 to 11.04 and whilst updating was browsing the internet. The update-manager didn't proceed for quite some time, then i discovered that there was a window behind the update manager that asked me to accept the EULA for mttcorefonts. I could not switch to this window, for there was no active window-manager at that moment. I.e. No titlebar above the window to activate the window in which i had to accept the EULA. I managed to proceed by clicking the checkbox and guessing i had to press "tab" twice to accept the EULA. Personally i think the update-manager should proceed even if the EULA is not accepted yet. Maybe the EULA can be shown after the distribution is upgraded? Sometimes other questions are asked to when upgrading and this can be annoying if the computer is left unattended, which most people do (i may hope). Is it not possible to delay the installation of these packages? Upon reboot the user is in front of the pc and can answer these questions.
