Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

software-center version 2.1.13

Under certain conditions the Install/Remove menu items have the incorrect state for a selected application. To reproduce:

1. Open Software Center.
2. From the main category screen, click one of the apps in the "Featured" panel.
3. Return to the category screen by clicking the "Get Software" button in the navigation pane above.
4. Click "Accessories" and click an entry in the application list.
5. Check the state of the "Install/Remove" items in the "File" menu. If it does not match, you've reproduced the bug.
6. If the menu "Install/Remove" *does* match the state of the button, click a different app in the list -- but choose one that's the opposite installed state from the previous choice.
7. Now check the menu "Install/Remove" again and observe the it no longer matches the state of the button.
