Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: boinc-manager

Ubuntu 9.04

Debian patch 003_use_sensible-browser.patch changes BOINC Manager behaviour to use sensible-browser, should wxLaunchDefaultBrowser fail (ATM, it does due to Bug #353365). Although a sensible idea for Debian (with Epiphany being the default browser), this patch is less than helpful when using Ubuntu, since Epiphany is not installed by default.
It should at least default to firefox or, ideally, use /etc/alternatives/x-www-browser.
