This bug was fixed in the package software-properties - 0.75

software-properties (0.75) karmic; urgency=low

  * new helper script "add-apt-repository" that can be used to
    enable a repository from the commandline. Useful for e.g.
    'add-apt-repository ppa:gnome-desktop'
  * fix error in auto-upgrade settings when
    dpkg-reconfigure unattended-upgrades was used (LP: #387704)
  * po/zh_TW.po:
    - updated, thanks to Roy Chan (LP: #365040)
  * softwareproperties/kde/SoftwarePropertiesKDE.py:
    - do not error on cancel (LP: #364288)
    - use the SUDO_USER home instead of /root (if available)
      (LP: #364197)
    - add utf8() function and replace the custom converts to it
      (hopefully fixes LP: #362188)
    - disable "Find best server" for now, the threading crashing
  * softwareproperties/gtk/DialogCacheOutdated.py:
    - fix incorrect wait on synaptic (LP: #357617, LP: #349639)
  * softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py:
    - check/ensure apt daily cron job is executable (LP: #390319)
