Description Tejas Dinkar 2005-08-17 13:47:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
The Authentication Indicator always seems to'reserve' space in the KDE system tray.

The First Screen shot is on loading X (before opening anything requiring root password)

The second screen shot is upon opening system-config-* (a badge appears)

The third screen shot is the system tray properties, the Authentication indicator is there in the left coloumn regardless of whether or not a badge is shown, allowing root access

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Stock FC4 - 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 KDE 3.4.0-6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot KDE

Actual Results:  There is a blank space in the system tray which cannot be filled

Expected Results:  No space used by the authentication indicator unless 'root' acccess is allowed, in which case the badge should be shown.

it seems the ksmserverrc in you $HOME/.kde/share/config/ and 
/usr/share/config still includes the pam-panel-icon entry. You should please 
delete the pam-panel-icon entry in both files. 
You should do it before login into KDE! 
It's fixed in new kdebase in rawhide. Thanks for your report.
