Bug Description

Hi, I'm having several problems with Karmic Alpha 64 bit, one of which is that I can't run any application that requires escalated priviledges. When I try to run synaptic, for instance, I get a dialog that says:

Failed to run /usr/sbin/synaptic as user root.
Failed to exec new process. Exec format error.

Running sudo <anything> from shell does nothing, just gives me another command prompt.
