PackageKit Error Screenshot

Description of problem:

I've got rawhide. I tried to use packagekit to update to the preview release today by clicking on the orange 'burst' icon in the panel alerts area. I selected "Update system now." Immediately, I got a dialog that said 

Method "Update System" with signature "" on interface "org.freedesktop.PackageKit.Transaction" doesn't exist.

I'm attaching a screenshot of the dialog.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
PackageKit-0.3.9-1.fc10.x86_64

How reproducible:

Not very. It seemed to work fine the second time I tried it.

Additional info:

I'm using the rawhide official Fedora repo as well as the new RPM Fusion repo. That's it.

I think you hit the server authentication fail... this is a bug I've only just fixed:

commit d03c82fa11f4255ea86ac048c4b018784f1d9467

    bugfix: fix protocol violation in the server and client
    
    PackageKit does not adhere to it's own specification where a new TID is required
    when an error is emitted on the original TID. For a couple of releases now
    we cleanup unused TID's after 5 seconds, to avoid denial of service attacks.
    As we re-use the original TID after showing the signature dialog, we wait on
    the client, and then resumbit after PolicyKit returns from the authentication
    request.
    If the user takes longer than 5 seconds to authenticate, then the TID is timed
    out, and the helpful error is presented to the user:
    
    Method 'Update System' with signature '' on interface
    'org.freedesktop.PackageKit.Transaction' doesn't exist.
    
    Of course, the correct fix is to release the TID on error to prevent it being
    reused, and also to re-request a TID after authentication has been obtained.
