usb-creator crashes when using -i option and not specifying the full image path

Bug Description

Binary package hint: usb-creator

With the Jaunty version of usb-creator, I could type "sudo usb-creator -i karmic-netbook-remix-i386.iso" and it would read the image no problem. With the new release for karmic, (sudo is not required) typing "usb-creator-[gtk|kde] -i karmic-netbook-remix-i386.iso" will crash with a popup window "Error - USB Startu..." and "Intstallation Failed" and the following error message on the terminal window: "USBCreatorProcessException: karmic-netbook-remix-i386.iso: No such file or directory" even though the gui listed the file including file size info. Adding "./" to the image path doesn't work either. Need to list the full path for this to work (i.e. "$PWD/karmic-netbook-remix-i386.iso").

This bug was fixed in the package usb-creator - 0.2.13

usb-creator (0.2.13) lucid; urgency=low

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Set the install window as translatable. Thanks Milo Casagrande
    (LP: #414742).
  * Fix a typo in the Windows frontend (LP: #454926).
  * Use a close button instead of a quit button in the GTK+ frontend
    (LP: #285916).
  * Change the program title (not the program name) to "Startup Disk
    Creator" as usb-creator writes to more than just USB disks these days
    (LP: #275138).
  * In the GTK+ frontend, scan the download directory on startup and add
    all the CD and disk images (LP: #441104).
  * Expand the path provided by the -i option to its absolute
    (LP: #458497).
  * Unmount the target device rather than calling sync (LP: #457510).

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * bin/usb-creator-helper: Supply start-time in the PolicyKit subject struct,
    so that this also works with current polkit-1 in lucid.
