Not sure what you mean by "authentication screen" here. The gdm login screen?

Please login, run the "loginctl" command and paste the output here.

Ops... "loginctl" listed the user logged in ("plex"). I installed plex media server that run the server with user "plex" on start up.
I'm so sorry for open this ticket. Excuse-me.
You can change this ticket as invalid.

Congratulations to the team behind Fedora/Linux/Gnome3 for the beautiful work.

No problem. Thanks for the report.

I started seeing this with Fedora 18. I just log in normally via gdb, and need to give root password to shut the machine down:

$ loginctl
   SESSION        UID USER             SEAT            
         2        500 julas            seat0           
         3          0 root                             
         5        500 julas            seat0           
         9        500 julas            seat0

I am assuming that session 3 is the culprit, but where could it be coming from? sudo perhaps?

See "loginctl session-status 3".
Comment 6 Julian Sikorski 2013-01-07 12:50:28 EST
On a second thought, it seems it has less to do with sudo and more with logging out and then back in:

         2        500 julas            seat0           
         3          0 root                             
         5        500 julas            seat0           
         7        500 julas            seat0
