Description Sandro Mathys 2008-10-30 14:08:14 EDT
Description of problem:
If I start the "Login Manager" from the "System Settings", I get that "KDE su" dialog to authenticate as root. While that dialog is open, the system settings windows is no longer rendered (i.e. just shows some white and grey, no icons, buttons, text, ...). Rendering works again after KDE su is closed (doesn't matter in what way). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- Fedora 10 S3 (installed from KDE LiveCD-ISO on USB-key), updated to latest
- kdebase-4.1.2-5.fc10.i386
- kdebase-libs-4.1.2-5.fc10.i386
- kde-settings-4.1-2.fc10.noarch

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the "Login Manager" from the "System Settings".
2. Leave "KDE su" open
3. Bring another (maximized) window to the foreground.
4. Bring the "System Settings" to the foreground.
Actual results:
Doesn't render anymore in the meantime.

Expected results:
Renders as usual.

There's this in kdebase-workspace-4.0.72-rootprivs.patch:
+        QProcess::execute( kdesu, args );

I think changing it to:
+        QProcess::startDetached( kdesu, args );
will fix this.
