Bug Description

(Hoary)
Taking a screen shot works like a charm when pressing 'Print Screen' or 'Alt +
Printscreen'.
However, if I have a gksudo (?) window poped up and am being prompted to enter
my user password... I can't take a screenshot, the PrintScreen key doesn't seem
to react. As soon as I have entered my password and clicked OK, I can
screenshots again.

Is gksudo shy, and doesn't like to be photographed ?! ;-)

gksudo grabs the keyboards input so you don't type your password in the wrong
place.
