[GTK3] No spinner when navigating to slow screens (e.g. first launch)

Bug #830682 reported by Matthew Paul Thomas on 2011-08-21

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
software-center (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Problem occurs with: software-center-gtk3 trunk r2155, Ubuntu Ocelot
Does not occur with: software-center trunk r2155, Ubuntu Ocelot

1. Launch USC.

Or (from test case sc-003):

1. Choose "View" > "All Software".
2. From the "All Software" menu in the navigation bar, choose "Provided by Ubuntu".

What happens: For a couple of seconds, nothing.

What should happen: As with USC 4.x, there should be a spinner centered in the main pane, to show that it hasn't frozen.

(The "Loading" text used in USC 4.x isn't necessary -- just the spinner by itself.)
