Description of problem:
While editing a file in gedit, I load an application that requires a
good while to load in the background.
The backgrounded application requires authentication, and
consolehelper-gtk pops up a window asking for a password.

By the time this happens, I am back in gedit, working.
Shortly before I finish entering a word with a linebreak,
consolehelper-gtk appears, steals keyboard focus and the
authentication failure is logged.

This shouldn't happen - keyboard focus should not be taken from any
other application.

Seems to be a dupe of http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118372
