Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

I first installed tuxpaint.

Then I saw the bundle of pre-school apps. Went for installing it.

Then marked other packages for install. Everything on the queue. Good!

On the middle of pre-school, it said it already has tuxpaint, gave me an ok button. After the click, the queue was gone.

Duda, I tried reproducing this problem in Ubuntu Software Center 2.1.18 in Ubuntu Maverick, and could not.

Here's what I did:
1. Install Tux Paint.
While Tux Paint is still installing:
2. Navigate to Pre-School Bundle and choose "Install".
3. Navigate to HomeBank and choose "Install".

ubuntu-edu-preschool still depends on tuxpaint, but all three installed without any error message.

Do you still get the same problem? If so, are your steps different from the ones I followed? Thanks.
