Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-properties-gtk

This is really weird. If I untick a 3rd party source, the listed item disappears and will not reappear until I uncomment the URL in /etc/apt/sources.list

Affected: Ubuntu Jaunty

Actually it just deletes the 3rd party source listing from the UI while the /etc/apt/sources.list is edited correctly (using #)
