Updating to usb-creator 0.2.18 fixes this for me

Thanks. I don't know enough about python to get it to install. Nothing
crucial, I'll wait for Lucid

uve, can you still reproduce this on current lucid?

Evan, wouldn't it make more sense to not intercept all crashes like this and let apport handle it? Then we'd get proper stack traces and runtime information?

I still get the error message with the current lucid version:
ii usb-creator 0.2.20
although the program itself reports to be $ usb-creator-gtk --version

Ok it works apparently, but you need to update usb-creator-gtk to the new version, which is not done automatically by installing the current usb-creator version since it does not depend on a specific revision of usb-creator-gtk.

Added explicit depend for latest version to usb-creator meta package to fix your issue Rumpeltux. Should not happen in version 0.2.21 onward.
