  iPhone with iOS 7 does not work on Ubuntu

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Devices running iOS 7 now have a USB Pair Trust prompt that appears
  when the device is plugged into a machine. This prompt reads "Trust
  This Computer? Your settings and data will be accessible from this
  computer when connected via USB or Wi-Fi. [Trust] [Don't Trust]"

  1) Plug powered-on Apple device with iOS 7 into Ubuntu USB port

  Expected results: 
  The device should pair with the Ubuntu machine when "Trust" is tapped.

  Actual results: 
  When plugged into an Ubuntu machine, when the Trust button on the prompt is clicked, the iPhone buzzes twice, then repeats the prompt. This will repeat endlessly. 

  On the Ubuntu machine, a dialog reading "The device "[name of device]"
  is locked. Enter the passcode on the device and click "Try again".
  [Cancel] [Try again]" is displayed. However, no opportunity to enter
  the passcode on the device is ever displayed. Clicking "Try again"
  only re-displays this dialog, endlessly.
