Bug Description

On dist-upgrading vom oneiroc to precise this appeared first at the very end of the upgrade process in the update-manager and now appears on each implicit start of the update-manager.

I can reproduce the problem on manually calling the script:

~> sudo python /usr/share/pyshared/DistUpgrade/xorg_fix_proprietary.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
