Bug description:
  0.20+bzr131-0ubuntu1 on quantal.

  - Call the D-Bus method InstallPackageNames() to install some package
  - You are prompted asking if you want to actually install this package, accept
  - You are pompted asking for your admin pass, enter it
  - The InstallPackageNames method returns and the package is being installed

  This method should not return until the package has actually be
  installed. That's the easiest way for the application to know that the
  package is now ready to be used. That's also how it's implemented in
  the official implementation of PackageKit.
