Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but this appears to be a "regular" (non-security) bug. I have unmarked it as a security issue since this bug does not show evidence of allowing attackers to cross privilege boundaries nor directly cause loss of data/privacy. Please feel free to report any other bugs you may find.

This crash has the same stack trace characteristics as bug #753570. However, the latter was already fixed in an earlier package version than the one in this report. This might be a regression or because the problem is in a dependent package.

This bug was fixed in the package software-properties - 0.82.5

software-properties (0.82.5) precise; urgency=low

  * softwareproperties/gtk/ Drop duplicate definition
    of on_treeview_sources_cursor_changed().
  * softwareproperties/gtk/ Fix crash when closing
    the application with the window title bar button. (LP: #911834)
  * add-apt-repository: Intercept ValueError in addition to URLError, as this
    is the error thrown when trying to decode invalid JSON (which happens on
    404 pages etc.). (LP: #861258)
  * softwareproperties/, _find_source_from_string():
    Reload the sources list before searching, as it might have changed while
    the D-BUS backend was running. (LP: #854818, #820150)
  * softwareproperties/gtk/ Add missing argument to
    menu popup() call. (LP: #815236)
