Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

software-center version 2.1.1

The current selected row in a list view is not correctly retained when navigating. Instead, the first item in the list is automatically selected.

This is a regression in 2.1.0.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open Software Center and click "Accessories" in the categories screen.
2. Click the row for "Alarm Clock" to select it.
3. Click the "More Info" button to view details for the "Alarm Clock" application.
4. Click the "Accessories" button in the navigation bar at the top of the screen to show the list view again.

What happens:

The row for the first item in the list ("7zip") is selected.

What should happen:

The row for "Alarm Clock" should remain selected.
