Recently, I noticed that gpk-update-viewer shows cute swimrings in the status column. Thats not right. If there is no status, or if you can't determine it, just don't show it.
Hmm, the "swimrings" indicates an problem with the code (they should never be seen). Could you please get the --verbose output when you can see the silly icons please.

gpk-update-viewer --verbose logs
I think I've fixed this in git master, I'll do another git snapshot in the next couple of days. If you could compile gnome-packagekit that would be great, although I'm pretty sure I've fixed it.
Seems fixed, thanks.
