Bug Description

software-center-gtk3 trunk 2114, Ubuntu Ocelot
software-center trunk r2457, Ubuntu 11.10 beta

0. Launch Ubuntu Software Center.
1. Go to this URL: apt:gobby,gimp,9base,abcd

What happens: USC attempts to take focus, and shows a messaging saying 'Not found' - 'There isn't a software package called "gobby,gimp,9base,abcd" in your current software sources.'

What should happen: USC opens to "gobby,gimp,9base,abcd" in its search field, and the corresponding custom list in the main pane.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareCenter#apturl>
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareCenter#custom-list>

[This report previously covered the general case. It now works from a fresh launch, but not if USC is already open.]
