Bug Description

Ubuntu Software Center 1.1.15, Ubuntu Lucid

1. Choose "View" > "All Applications" (if it is not selected already).
2. In the "Get Software" section, navigate to an application in Universe, e.g. JuK.
3. Choose "View" > "Canonical-Maintained Applications".
4. Switch to the "Installed Software" section.
5. Switch back to the "Get Software" section.

What happens:
3. The JuK screen remains visible.
5. You return to the JuK screen.

What should happen:
3. USC automatically navigates up to "Sound & Video".
5. USC remains on "Sound & Video".

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareCenter#get-software-item>: "If the relevant package is not maintained by Canonical and you then choose “View” > “Canonical-Maintained Software”, the Center should automatically navigate up to the subsection screen; or, if the entire subsection contains no Canonical-maintained items, up to the department screen; or, if the entire department contains no Canonical-maintained items, up to the lobby screen."

I suggest "What should happen" to be returning to the category of the universe program you were viewing. Example, you go into Internet and look up epi (short for epiphany), then cause the bug, then, you returning to the Get Free Software screen causes you to be looking at all of the content of the Internet category, instead of seeing epiphany's "page".

I have confirmed this. I have all updates installed, I am using karmic-security and karmic-updates, and not using karmic-proposed or karmic-backports, and I am using the i386 architecture.

  [ Kiwinote ]
  * data/ui/SoftwareCenter.ui:
    - mark the back/forward actions as translatable (LP: #742129)
  * softwarecenter/db/database.py,
    - make custom lists work (LP: #712903)
  * softwarecenter/app.py,
    - when the supported filter is set to supported_only, navigate up if:
      - we are in a details view of an app which is not supported (LP: #480827)
      - we are in a list view which becomes empty
  * softwarecenter/app.py,
    - correctly count the nr of apps displayed in the recommended category and
      update it when needed (LP: #735634)
    - only display subcategories if they are non-empty (LP: #419270)
  * softwarecenter/backend/weblive.py:
    - don't crash if we try to delete a non-existent file (LP: #743511)
  * softwarecenter/db/reviews.py,
    - fallback to ReviewLoaderJsonAsync when we can't use multiprocessing
      (LP: #741069)
    - fixes to make ReviewLoaderJsonAsync 'work' (ie most common cases)
  * softwarecenter/db/update.py:
    - don't import softwarecenter.log
  * softwarecenter/view/appdetailsview_gtk.py:
    - don't draw random boxes when we have an error layout (LP: #739269)
    - retire share button as we now have full microblogging support in the
      review dialog (LP: #592619, LP: #743765)
  * softwarecenter/view/appview.py:
    - correctly refresh listview when supported filters are changed
  * softwarecenter/view/catview.py:
    - if a category has subcategories, then category.query should include all
      items included in the subcategories, not a subset of these
  * softwarecenter/view/widgets/pathbar_gtk_atk.py:
    - avoid having a half-height pathbar (LP: #743614)
  * refresh .pot file

  [ Gary Lasker ]
  * softwarecenter/view/widgets/reviews.py:
    - fix crash if app_version is not defined when
      calling upstream_version_compare (LP: #746120)
  * softwarecenter/view/purchaseview.py:
    - disconnect webkit signal handlers when the webkit view
      is not showing (LP: #696861)
    - support 'user_cancelled' from the software-center-agent
      (LP: #641321)
  * softwarecenter/view/softwarepane.py,
    - animate the action bar show/hide
  * softwarecenter/view/appview.py:
    - in the AppViewFilter, also consider apps in the for-purchase
      channel as available; this allows them to show up in
      e.g. What's New (LP: #746679)

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * softwarecenter/db/update.py:
    - ensure the iconname that comes from the software-center-agent
      does not contain a ".", the icon cache gets confused otherwise
