Thats definately an error of some sort. Maybe the parser is broken in
some fashion?

The three radio buttins, prev, curr, exp still apply with categories.

Something anyway :]. The current code uses description if it's present,
otherwise the name. We have two options: ensure that the package name is
present in the description (ie "mingw-runtime: The run time libraries
for mingw programs") or a popup (move the mouse over, see the details,
or a wider column, or possibly a info area at the bottom of the screen.
I don't like the idea of the columns getting _even_ wider..
