Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

The Feature and What's New carousels should begin their timed transition cycle automatically on launch, but instead they simply sit at the same static set of packages indefinitely. The transition cycle can be initiated only by selecting one of the paging dots.

TEST CASE for SRU:
1. Launch the current version of Software Center in Natty (4.0.1 or 4.0.2).
2. Observe the Featured and What's New carousels for about 30 seconds and not that they remain unchanged and never automatically transition to the next group of packages.
3. Update to Software Center 4.0.3 in natty-proposed.
4. Launch Software Center version 4.0.3 and again observe the Featured and What's New carousels.
5. Verify that the Featured carousel transitions (with a fade-out and fade-in) after about 15 seconds, and the What's New carousel transitions about 5 seconds after that. Verify that the transitions continue from this point.
