  [Gnome-Control-Center] ticking for backport updates erase the

Status in “software-properties” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This is how to reproduce the bug.
  1-go to "system parameter" in top left corner menu (or launch gnome-control-center in a terminal).
  2-in the panel "updates" just tick as if you want to add quantal-proposed or quantal-backport repositories.

  By doing this, it will modified the file /etc/apt/sources.list .

  I give 2 files :
  sources.list.init : sources.list before i add quantal-proposed
  sources.list.modified : sources.list after i add quantal-proposed

  luckily, the sources.list is saved before the modification and the
  command mv sources.list.save sources.list resolve the problem.
