Inconsistent menu entry

Bug Description

When a user installs ethereal, it places two menu entries under Applications -> Internet

When a user installs ethereal, it places two menu entries under Applications -> Internet. One is labelled as 'Ethereal' and doesn't allow capture, and the other is labelled 'Ethereal (as root)', and is full featured. The bug is that the second entry evokes the command 'gksu -u root /usr/bin/ethereal', and not 'gksu -S /usr/bin/ethereal', which would allow a user to use their own sudo passwd and not force them to either run it from a terminal or create a root account. I believe that this should be changed, so that it is consistent with Ubuntu's heavy use of sudo.
