ubuntu-calculator-app seems to be broken with the previous stable #22
too though, with a similar error report. We did notice that too now
that I read the chat log, but didn't consider for this upgrade as it
seemed to be the status quo.

But just in case, and as per Dan's e-mail indicating also a problem in
some app, I reverted Stable channel back to the #22 and will bump the
content: field to ubuntu-app-platform2 and version to 2.

However, I'm not aware of store support of supporting two such
different versions in stable channel at the same time, so I'm
currently unsure how this would work without renaming the whole
package too. Until I know more, I'll keep the stable at #22 and the
upcoming #26 in the other channels.
