Bug Description

Ubuntu Software Center 1.1.20, Ubuntu Lucid

1. Navigate to "Get Software" > "Fonts" > "Japanese OpenType font set IPAfont".

What happens: The main heading in the software item screen is "otf-ipafont".
What should happen: The main heading is "Japanese OpenType font set IPAfont".

The same problem does not occur on the screen for applications, e.g. "Aisleriot Solitaire" or "Adblock Plus Extension for Firefox". And nor does it occur in software listings since bug 530422 was fixed.

This suggests a possible factoring problem. There should be a single function that, for a given software item, returns its title <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareCenter#software-title>. This function should be used consistently by software list views, the software item screen, and the pathbutton.

It may save time to fix bug 549011 at the same time as this bug.
