I have gedit-3.22.0-4.fc26.rpm and I can reproduce the bug. Gedit is asking for root password when opening user files.

Are we the only ones facing this issue?
Comment 3 Afox 2017-08-26 07:49:39 EDT
I am not sure but I think this problem got solved by the latest updates.
Comment 4 François L 2017-09-13 03:10:57 EDT
I can confirm this bug on fedora 26, using latest available gedit package (gedit-3.22.1-1.fc26.x86_64.rpm).

I am using gedit.x86_64_2:3.22.1-1.fc26, I face the same issue. I need to enter root password once in a day for accessing gedit
