releasing package software-properties version 0.96.24.17

tests/test_dbus.py: Don't call GTK from multiple processes.

We started seeing software-properties tests failing with fatal X errors after
GTK 3.22.24 was uploaded. I think what happened was:
    - the testsuite imports GTK (via GI)
    - this import itself initialises GTK, retrieving the value of a load of
      X atoms
    - it forks to start software-properties-dbus in a separate process
    - this process then accesses another X atom after we ask it to do stuff
    - X doesn't like that and kills us
  The testsuite is now rewritten to not fork. We start a separate *thread*
  to run the D-Bus service in. A benefit of this is that we're more
  asynchronous than we were before, so some of the tests are slightly
  refactored to not run their own main loop but instead check that the
  signal emission they're interested in has happened. (LP: #1721828)

softwareproperties/MirrorTest.py: fix some imports so that the script can
be used independent of software-properties-gtk.

software-properties-gtk: also fix the backend code to set the gnome
debconf frontend, without which libgtk2-perl goes unused.

992. By Steve Langasek on 2017-04-10

software-properties-gtk: recommend libgtk2-perl, to ensure we have a
working debconf frontend when trying to install additional drivers.
