Using Quantal, from an upgrade, rather than a clean install.
synaptic 0.80~exp1

Synaptic crashes when I select a package in the "Not Installed" category if that package has nothing in the "Description" and "Latest Version" fields.

This is happening with my Precise Pangolin, my Quantal Quetzal and my Raring Ringtale. In all the 12.x Ubuntus I use, Synaptic crashes when I try to remove residual configurations from removed packages.
