Description Hardy Merrill 2003-09-16 17:24:21 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
When running an app as a non-root user - an app that needs to be run as root,
userhelper presents the 'Password for root' dialog with a Cancel and an OK
button.  If you press the Cancel button, you get an Error Dialog that says
'Unknown exit code'.

Dan Walsh confirmed this same behavior on Cambridge.

I've tried this with redhat-config-cluster and redhat-config-users.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. as a non-root user, at a command prompt, run redhat-config-users
2. on the 'Password for root' dialog, click 'Cancel'

Actual Results:  Error dialog appears saying "Unknown exit code".

Expected Results:  No error.
