gksu dialog box hangs when xfce compositing is on
so i use xubuntu 7.10 (just upgraded from 7.04) and the password dialog box hangs after you enter your password and hit 'enter'... it takes a while to authenticate it seems! i checked out GNOME to see if it was the same and it is not - was no problem in GNOME.
one interesting thing I noticed - before in 7.04, when I was watching video on my second monitor & a password dialog box appeared for whatever reason, the video on the second screen would stop and the screen would dim, but the audio would continue. now, the audio and video continue until you hit 'enter' after you have entered your password. then the same old song and dance - while it takes forever to make sure my password is correct, it pauses the video and continues the audio. thanks!
i also have 2 xubuntu computers at work, these are not experiencing this issue... so it is either hardware i have at home, or an issue with my initial installation. i might just do a clean install to see if that fixes the problem.
