Bug Description

After clicking on the "Cancel Purchase" or "Uninstall" button, the app starts downloading and installing again. Clicking on that button should uninstall instead.

This seems to be an unintended side effect of the fix which landed in revision 320 for bug #1289434 . The issue is replicable with free apps as well as when cancelling a purchase for a paid app.

summary: - Installation is started after clicking on "Cancel Purchase"
+ Perpetual installation loop when uninstalling app

Upon deeper debugging, it seems there is a race somewhere, which results in occasionally, a "purchased" status being sent via the dbus signal, immediately prior to the "not purchased" status, after a refund, which results in the "purchaseCompleted" action from the payment button being called.

I see an immediate fix which can be made to unity8, so I'm moving this bug there. There may be a race in libpay/pay-service as well here, but it will require further debugging to isolate. I also seem to be unable to replicate this with free apps any more, so I suspect the changes from the completed refunds feature resolved that side of the issue.
