USC can unhelpfully trigger multiple "Repairing broken deps" tasks

Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Ubuntu Software Center 3.0.5, Ubuntu 10.10

I have no way of reproducing this problem, but while trying to uninstall three items, Ubuntu Software Center brought up four repair-needed alerts. Choosing "Repair" for each of them resulted in four "Reparing broken deps" tasks, the latter three of which did nothing.

USC should be smart enough to see if a repair task is in the queue already, and if it is, not to prompt for a new one.

We will need a way to reproduce this issue in order to fix it. mpt, this is a very old bug, have you seen this occur in recent versions of Ubuntu Software Center? If so, we should set it as "Confirmed" I guess. Thanks!
