Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

software-center version 2.1.2

When displaying a view that does not include back/forward history navigation buttons, the corresponding menu items should be set to insensitive rather than removed.

To reproduce:

1. From the main category view choose "Accessories".
2. Open the "View" menu and not that the "Go Back" and "Go Forward" menu items are displayed (and the "Go Back" item is sensitive).
3. In the left-hand navigation pane, choose the "Canonical Partners" item.
4. In the "Canonical Partners" view, open the "View" menu.

What happens:
5. The "Go Back" and "Go Forward" menu items are missing.

What should happen:
5. The "Go Back" and "Go Forward" menu items should be displayed, and be insensitive.
