Binary package hint: software-center

The custom package list feature (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareCenter#Custom%20package%20lists) is not working consistently for certain combinations of package names, and while typing the custom list into the search field.

To reproduce (this test assumes that the packages "ark" and "artha" are not currently installed):

1. Open Software Center in in the search bar of the main lobby, type package name "ark".
2. Type a comma to begin creating a custom package list. Note the action bar now shows a button offering to "Install 1 item".
3. Type the letter "a" to start adding the next package to the list.

What should happen:
The "Install 1 item" button continues to be shown.
What happens:
The action bar is hidden.

4. Now slowly type the rest of the package letters "r", "t", "h", "a". The search field should now read "ark,artha" and the two packages should be displayed in the list view.

What should happen:
The action bar button should be shown and should now offer to "Install 2 items"
What happens:
The action bar is hidden and there is no way to install the custom list of items.
