Bug Description

Binary package hint: gksu

Sometimes when update manger ask for password after I enter the correct password gnome desktop freeze.
- I cant interact with open windows or switch between window
- I can move the mouse and the apps on the upper panel are working except I cant interact with them.
To fix this problem I open the terminal using Alt-Ctrl-F1 then terminate gksu process. After that every thing return to normal including update-manager. The status of the gksu is sleeping CPU and HDD are idles (normal) when this happen.
