This happens to me too, on Oneiric. I notice the bug seems to affect several Norwegian users, so I tried sudo LANG=en_EN.utf8 synaptic and the problem went away. So the developers might look into that...

I have the issue as well, also Norwegian, sudo LANG=en_EN.utf8 synaptic worked here as well.

Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.

Changed in synaptic (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

I have this same problem in PL language in ze-linux in synaptic ,
 but in pc-linux distro is this same problem.
I installed something , and I don't know , and I have this bug.
I used " valgrind -v " for debug problem , but I don't know how debug. xD

valgrind -v synaptic

valgrind -v synaptic ( with working utf-8 in synaptic )
