Description of problem:
exec /usr/bin/pkexec /usr/share/system-config-date/system-config-date.py
in executable script.
Unfortunately using 'exec' cause a double forking issue if starting from mate-control-center, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=972534 .
Using '/usr/bin/pkexec /usr/share/system-config-date/system-config-date.py' would fix the issue.
Is it possible to change that or is there a technical reason to use 'exec' in the script?
Thanks in advance
