Bug Description

This build failure occurred: https://objectstorage.prodstack4-5.canonical.com/v1/AUTH_77e2ada1e7a84929a74ba3b87153c0ac/autopkgtest-xenial/xenial/i386/s/software-properties/20151026_184437@/log.gz

While that's probably a temporary failure, it would still be better to log the exception and continue trying other shortcut handlers.

  * In ppa.py, shortcut_handler(), if a ShortcutException occurs, print
    the traceback to stderr and return None to allow other shortcut
    handlers to run. (LP: #1510558)

Fwiw, this causes a regression in the UI of add-apt-repository: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/software-properties/+bug/1594776
