Bug Description

Packages that you buy started appearing with prices like "US$ US$ 5.99" in the software center in quantal a while ago. I realized this when enabling the fake-distro environment variable to pretend I was running under precise.

I've included a screenshot of the problem, where you can see that Bastion is "US$ US$ 18.99".

On a related note, why is it "US$ 18.99" instead of "US $18.99"? Americans never put a space between the numbers and dollar sign.
