Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

This occurred when trying to reinstall my previous purchases software on a fresh Natty installation.

To reproduce:
1. Start with a fresh Natty install (or use "File"->"Deauthorize Computer" if it is available) and have previously purchased an item for sale in Natty (currently, "Volley Brawl").
2. Choose "File"->"Reinstall Previous Purchases" and sign in to your Ubuntu SSO account.
3. Dismiss the "success" dialog.
4. In the list that is displayed, select the Volley Brawl item and choose "More Info".

The crash happens at this point. Note that the details view page is terribly mis-rendered.
