Thanks for your bugreport.

Sessioninstaller should not actually crash in this case but instead show a error. It would also be
nice if it could make use of the command-not-found data. I assume that covers a lot of the cases
when install_provide_files() is used by apps, to look for helper binaries.

This bug was fixed in the package sessioninstaller - 0.20+bzr115-0ubuntu1

sessioninstaller (0.20+bzr115-0ubuntu1) maverick; urgency=low

  * New bzr version that use the command-not-found database to
    find files asked for by the InstallProviding interface. This
    helps e.g. brasero to find the cdrdao package when it needs it
