Cosmetic problems with popup menu in "Grant rights" dialog

Bug #38559 reported by Nicolas Blanco on 2006-04-07
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gksu (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

These cosmetic problems occur in the Grant Rights dialog when you've just launched an application that requires administration rights.

If you right click on the password edit box, the standard popup menu appears.

But :
1) the mouse cursor switches to a wheel ("Loading" status), it shouldn't.
2) If you close the popup, the dark background is not refreshed (the popup image remains on the background).

Confirmed for Dapper Beta. Gksu is used to start Synaptic with root permissions. When using a launcher, the command 'gksu /usr/sbin/synaptic' will be executed. However, update-notifier-0.42 (file: update-notifier.c, line 64) will execute the command 'gksu --message <translated message> /usr/sbin/synaptic'. So there is the difference.

Not very important, but could be nice to fix before final. Good luck!

I don't see either of these problems in Ubuntu 7.04. Is anyone seeing these two issues?

gksu is in practice abandonware, and Ubuntu has moved to PolicyKit.
