Bug#600365: gksu: On kfreebsd gksu never runs the program requested to run.

Package: gksu
Version: 2.0.2-3
Severity: important
User: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org
Usertags: kfreebsd
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org

On kfreebsd, when the first program is requested to run in a GNOME
session using gksu the user is prompted for the administrative password.
Entering of an incorrect password causes the user to be prompted for the
password again, as gksu should behave. On entering a correct password
the program requested to run is not run, this not how gksu should
behave. If a program is later requested to run using gksu then a
"Granting Rights" item appears in Window List for several seconds and
then disappears but the requested program is not run. These programs can
be run using 'su -c'.

$ gksu --debug gnome-system-log
xauth: -edb34b3bcaa00f11c3796acb0718d433

P.S. Recreated .Xauthority now. :)
