I got this e-mail some weeks ago and havn't had time to look into it.  Anyone able to check what needs doing?

Subject: Lancelot bug in kubuntu backports PPA

 Hi Jonathan,

A bug was identified in Linux Mint 10 KDE. It affects the Lancelot menu 
and prevents it from updating its list of applications after a package 
is installed/removed.

Bug report:

The fix is extremely simple as you can see below:


Let me know if you can push this fix towards the Kubuntu Backport PPA. 
The affected package is plasma-widget-lancelot.

We're ready to apply it in our repositories, though it involves all the 
packages from kdeplasma-addons (pinning 10 packages altogether) and it's 
probably something KDE 4.6 users in Kubuntu will want to see fixed as well.

PS: I added Ivan (author of Lancelot) in CC.

Let me know, thanks.
