Update Manager takes a long time to update when the list is not empty

Bug Description

In Precise, if you check for updates from Update Manager when the list already has updates to install, after searching, Update Manager stalls for several seconds for each of the items already listed, removing one after every 5 seconds or so, from the top to the bottom, till the list is empty. Only then, it shows us the updated list.

Note: this only happens if the updates description box is shown, so it looks like the problem is that update manager loads the description first and only then removes the item from the list.
