Using version 2.1.20 of Software Center I installed build 9047 of Opera. As soon as SC confirmed that Opera had been upgraded I started Opera and SC crashed.

This bug was fixed in the package software-center - 3.0.4

software-center (3.0.4) maverick; urgency=low

  [ Gary Lasker ]
  * softwarecenter/view/
    - fix intermittent crash in _set_cursor (LP: #617004)

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * Create the log directory not on the import Otherwise
    if the user upgrades using a sudo based tool (like apt-get) he
    may end up with a root owned log (LP: #652151)
  * softwarecenter/
    - ensure we don't create directories in /home when running as
    - When detecting a not writable cache dir, try to remove it
      so that it gets re-created later with the right permissions.
      That will undo the damage in bug LP: #652151
