Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: adept

Version: Jaunty

When a bad 3rd party repository is added to adept, it is not able to
recover. For instance, it is common for less experienced users to add a
repository without the preceding "deb".

The user is not able to recover from this without manually editing
sources.list. Trying to start adept will just make it crash.

Proper behavior is to inform the user that there is a bad repository
(via a popup warning when adept starts) and ignore that line in
sources.list. The user can then correct it via adept's "edit sources".
The bad entry should show highlighted or with a warning icon in the
"edit sources" window.
