Bug Description

Binary package hint: synaptic

Pretty much as corner-case as you get but:

Start synaptic so that the password prompt comes up
At this point, my typing break began

I can't click postpone on the typing break

I should be able to click postpone and then enter my password, as normal

== How to reproduce ==
- configure a typing break and check the box 'allow postponing of break'
- launch an application with gksu
- let the password box opened until the typing break arrives

Result:
- The postpone button is not clickable
- You can still enter some text in the password box which is below g-t-m

== Version affected ==
gksu | 2.0.2-2ubuntu1 | lucid | source, amd64, i386
gnome-control-center | 1:2.29.91-0ubuntu2 | lucid | source, amd64, i386

Thanks for your report.

What is your 'Typing break' ? Is it an application which starts when it's your typing break ? Could you please clarify ?
Thanks.

This is from preferences -> keyboard -> typing break with 'allow postponing of breaks' selected

Thanks. I never used that feature before.

I can reproduce the issue. It's clearly a bug.
If gksu (the password entry) is opened and then gnome-typing-monitor starts, the postpone button (g-t-m) can not be clicked but you can still enter the password into the gksu box (which is behind the g-t-m window)

I'm confirming the issue, reaffecting to gnome-typing-monitor and adding a gksu task.

Thanks for your help.
