Package: gnome-sudo
Version: 0.3-1
Severity: grave

I'm puzzled: whenever I try to run program with gnome-sudo, all I 
get is a error message window with text: "Error copying '/home/user/
.Xauthority' to '/tmp/gnome-sudo-aBcDe': Permission denied". The
directories created in /tmp seem to have rights only for the user
running gnome-sudo.

I recall at some point (last year) gnome-sudo did work. One possible
reason for this change could be recent sudo updates.

Hmmm... in this case, I'll close the bug and you can reopen it
in case you hit this problem again with gksu, ok?
