Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Software & Updates with `software-properties-gtk`
2. Switch to *Other Software* tab
3. Click *Add*
4. Enter correct deb-src repository line like `deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise main universe multiverse`

Expected result:
* the entered repository line is added in the list of current tab (and to sources.list), user was asked about reloading repository information

Actual result:
* user asked to enter password, the entered repository line is ignored, user is not informed, dialog closed without any messages

Workaround:
* add binary repository `deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise main universe multiverse` and then uncheck binaries and check source code mark
