Bug Description

On a fresh install of Ubuntu Netbook Remix that has been fully patched. Download of a .deb package for install of OpenProj ( http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?group_id=199315&filename=openproj_1.4-2.deb&a=4285274 ) prompts the user asking what should be used to open the file. This should be associated with the GDebi package installer.

Thanks for taking the time to report this and help make Ubuntu better. I was finally able to reproduce this bug, but only on certain mirrors with sourceforge.net downloads, not all of them. For instance, if I tried a different mirror (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/openproj/OpenProj%20Binaries/1.4/openproj_1.4-2.deb?use_mirror=kent) with the same download, it properly asked to bring up gdebi. I'm marking this invalid because I believe it to be related to the mirror you are downloading from, and not an actual bug in Ubuntu. If you have a reason why you believe this is incorrect, please feel free to reopen the bug. Thanks!
