Description of problem:
When trying to open another log that is not a default log for system log viewer when it is launched, an inform developers dialog box opened and only the file choser and system log viewer progaram were visible. I was not able to either choose a file or get system log viewer to do anything when mouse clocked over menus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open system logviewer, give root password
2.notice log which is of interest is not listed
3. go to log on menus on top of program, choose open
Actual Results: A dialog box popped up to either restat application (no aplication restarted when chosen.)
When chosing inform developers, email generated via sendmail, not sure if message made it to upstream or not.
Expected Results: I should be able to choose a log from /var/log or wherever the log resides with the file chooser.

The program ran normally in a root terminal.
This problem seemed to be related to authentication and seems to not be present
any longer. Fixed in rawhide.
