Description Tom Horsley 2009-04-23 00:06:36 UTC
Description of problem:
In a shell where you happen to already be logged in as root, run the
system-config-printer tool, Help>Troubleshoot and go through the
troubleshoot wizard to the point where it asks you to enable debugging.
This is where it also normally asks you for the root password. If you
are already running as root, the window just disappears and the shell
says it did an exit(1).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-printer-1.1.7-1.fc11.x86_64

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
exit(1)

Expected results:
enabling of debugging

Additional info:
Bug 496521 is where I noticed this, so if you need details on the specific
printer involved, that is where you can find them.
