This issue has reared its head just today. the Ubuntu Software Centre seems to be broken

It loads up a blank window with the title "Ubuntu Software Centre" but doesn't do anything else after that.

Here is the console output:

    rymate@rymate-Aspire-5551:~$ software-center
    2011-12-26 16:21:10,618 - softwarecenter.ui.gtk3.em - INFO - EM's: 17 15 21

Anything I can do to fix? Or am I gonna have to use synaptic package manager to install stuff.
