Bug Description

Lucid alpha 2: first 21 characters of Synaptic "Applying changes" status line (e.g. Preparing blahpackage0-dev) are italic, while the rest of the characters are not. This isn't a major issue, and is purely cosmetic.

Thanks Jean for looking into this!

I think the real problem is a bug in gtk, the default (glade) string is using <i>...</i> but in the code I use the (deprecated) gtk_label_set() so that should clean the markup. I switched that to "gtk_label_set_text()" now. But even then I see the italics.
