I am having a problem installing Tim Schafers epic platform video game Psychonauts trough the Ubuntu Software Center.

I have bought the game on and I have used the new redeem option introduced in this bundle: "redeem your bundle on the Ubuntu Software Center."

When I have downloaded approximately 2.1 GB of Psychonauts then Ubuntu Software Center starts to repeatedly crash and pop-up with a new crash report dialog every few seconds (before previous ones are closed and that will crash the computer after a few min, unless I stop the download).

I also have a file-size bug, where Ubuntu Software Center tells me that I have downloaded 880,2 MB out of 133,3 MB

I use the new Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Ubuntu Software Center version (©2009-2011 Canonical <--- That is also a bug, should be 2012 I guess)

I hope someone can help me.

I had the same problem. Keeping ignoring the pop-up windows did not stop the installation. Psychonauts finally got installed and only at that moment I closed the Software Center and the bug windows.
