Bug Description

Updated my EEE 900 to Karmic. Now Gwibber, Ubuntu Software Store and perhaps others crash immediately when run with:

wolverian@pupupu:~ (master)$ software-store
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::length_error'
  what(): basic_string::assign
Keskeytetty (core dumped)

Apport notices this, but say it can't report it. Now it comes to me that I should probably check if that's reported on apport yet.

works with:
Launch from console: LANG="C" gwibber

Some translation problems with python software?

Could you please run "software-center --debug" and attach the output here?
