In gpk-application window, left click on the "Other" category. The "Other" list displays but the query seems to go into an infinite loop. The list "jiggles" after about eight seconds. In lower left corner of window, query stays...never goes to finished. I started gpk-application from command line and watched its feedback under various tasks like clicking on other subsections. When clicking on "Other", the terminal feedback scrolls forever. I watched pkmon feedback for awhile under various gui tasks. It indicated all was ok with pk. It finished while gpk-application was indicating a permanent loop.

What does "pkcon search group other" do?
