Description of problem:
I'm having some problems with the su command. I recently installed fedora and updated it and I am getting delay problems with the su commend.
I'm using gnome console.
When i type su and then enter the password it works fine.
If i then switch back to a user and then try su again it takes ages to switch to the root but if i open a new console window and type su it's instant.
I've also tried this with xterm and i get the same result.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open gnome-console
2. type su
3. type password
4. type su user
5. type su
Actual Results: On the second and consecutive su (to the root) command it hangs. It does eventually switch to the root
Expected Results: It should be an instant switch to the root
