Package: software-properties-gtk
Version: 0.60.debian-3
Severity: important

Software Sources used to work but recently its first tab is broken.
It always shows the "Main server" as selected, even if we select a different
one (actually if we run the test to find the best server, it sets the server
alright but the first tab still shows the main - us - server).
Also it doesn't show the checkboxes for main, contrib and non-free checked. If
we try to tick them it doesn't tick in the GUI but it sets the us server in
sources.list (in a bizarre placement, by the way: penultimate line).

Screenshot shows Software Sources' first tab not matching with sources.list's
