Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

ubuntu v11.04 i386

nautilus v1:2.32.2.1-0ubuntu13 i386

expected: nautilus instance to run with root permissions

result: nautilus failed to start with terminal output;

(nautilus:5509): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported

**
GLib-GIO:ERROR:/build/buildd/glib2.0-2.28.6/./gio/gdbusconnection.c:2279:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)
Aborted (core dumped)

possibly deliberate to handle security issues (i.e. running GUI filemanager as root is bad) however could be handled better if so.
