Here is one method to see the dialog without working remotely:

sudo sed 's/<allow_active>yes/<allow_active>auth_self/' -i /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.accounts.policy
Then press Alt+Ctrl+F2 to switch to vt2, and Alt+Ctrl+F7 to switch back to vt7.

After testing, to revert the change, run:
sudo sed 's/<allow_active>auth_self/<allow_active>yes/' -i /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.accounts.policy

On LTSP thin clients, one can reproduce it by just changing VTs, without changing the accountsservice polkit files.
