Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Ubuntu Software Center, Ubuntu Maverick

1. Navigate to "Get Software" > "For Purchase" > "Hello X Adventure", and choose "Buy...".
2. Sign on.
3. Fill out the payment form correctly, and choose "Review Payment".
4. Scroll to the bottom and choose "Submit Payment".
5. Watch as the payment is completed.
6. Authenticate when requested.

What happens: Ubuntu Software Center navigates, by itself, from the software item screen back to the software listing.
What should happen: USC should stay on the software item screen, showing the installation progress bar.

Is this reproducable for you? For me in my tests it keeps staying on the details page. Does it print anything if you run with --debug?

I'm not sure if this still happens actually, but the linked branch implements the inline purchase flow and will return to the details view after purchase to display the install progress.
