This makes discover (master) crash because it makes PackageKit choke.

$ pacman -Ss tesseract-game

Additional info:

Reason for closing:  Upstream
Additional comments about closing:  Data is regenerated periodically, we currently don't have the resources to regenerate it every time a package is added/removed

This should be handled in Discover not to crash in this situation. Packages are being removed all the time and regenerating the appstream metadata is an expensive operation, so there will be some missing packages most of the time.
