Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Software Center version 3.1.15
Software Center trunk revision 1458

Custom package list functionality is no longer working correctly (refer to the spec at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareCenter#Custom%20package%20lists).

To reproduce:
On a system where the packages "ark" and "artha" are not installed, and "software-center" is installed. navigate to the main category screen and enter the following into the search field (without quotes): "ark,artha,software-center".

Expected:
1. The three packages should appear in the list view in the order typed.
2. The status bar at the bottom of the window should display the text "3 items".
3. The action bar should appear at the bottom of the list view with a button labeled "Install 2 items" (corresponding to "ark" and "artha")

Actual:
1. The package list correctly displays the three items in the correct order.
2. The status bar incorrectly displays "0 items".
3. The action bar with install button does not appear.

See attached screenshot.

    - make custom lists work (LP: #712903)
  * softwarecenter/app.py,
    softwarecenter/distro/Ubuntu.py,
    softwarecenter/view/widgets/pathbar_gtk_atk.py:
    - when the supported filter is set to supported_only, navigate up if:
      - we are in a details view of an app which is not supported (LP: #480827)
      - we are in a list view which becomes empty
  * softwarecenter/app.py,
    softwarecenter/view/catview_gtk.py:
    - correctly count the nr of apps displayed in the recommended category and
      update it when needed (LP: #735634)
    - only display subcategories if they are non-empty (LP: #419270)
  * softwarecenter/backend/weblive.py:
    - don't crash if we try to delete a non-existent file (LP: #743511)
  * softwarecenter/db/reviews.py,
    softwarecenter/distro/Ubuntu.py:
    - fallback to ReviewLoaderJsonAsync when we can't use multiprocessing
      (LP: #741069)
    - fixes to make ReviewLoaderJsonAsync 'work' (ie most common cases)
  * softwarecenter/db/update.py:
    - don't import softwarecenter.log
  * softwarecenter/view/appdetailsview_gtk.py:
    - don't draw random boxes when we have an error layout (LP: #739269)
    - retire share button as we now have full microblogging support in the
      review dialog (LP: #592619, LP: #743765)
  * softwarecenter/view/appview.py:
    - correctly refresh listview when supported filters are changed
  * softwarecenter/view/catview.py:
    - if a category has subcategories, then category.query should include all
      items included in the subcategories, not a subset of these
  * softwarecenter/view/widgets/pathbar_gtk_atk.py:
    - avoid having a half-height pathbar (LP: #743614)

    - fix crash if app_version is not defined when
      calling upstream_version_compare (LP: #746120)
  * softwarecenter/view/purchaseview.py:
    - disconnect webkit signal handlers when the webkit view
      is not showing (LP: #696861)
    - support 'user_cancelled' from the software-center-agent
      (LP: #641321)
  * softwarecenter/view/softwarepane.py,
    softwarecenter/view/widgets/actionbar.py:
    - animate the action bar show/hide
  * softwarecenter/view/appview.py:
    - in the AppViewFilter, also consider apps in the for-purchase
      channel as available; this allows them to show up in
      e.g. What's New (LP: #746679)

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * softwarecenter/db/update.py:
    - ensure the iconname that comes from the software-center-agent
      does not contain a ".", the icon cache gets confused otherwise
