Description of problem:

After updating to rawhide an Authentication dialog pop up as soon as GDM started asking me to provide the root password for gnome-power-backlight-helper to be able to run, then it ask for those privileges again as soon as I had logged in ( bug 604625 ). 

Then I simply thought that hey would it be nice if I could just report this straight away and the details that come with it to bugzilla from the authenticate dialog since policykit will need to adjust the policy/rules to allow for the application to run the needed command ( in this case /usr/bin/gnome-power-backlight-helper --get-max-brightness ) with the superuser privileges just like setroubleshoot does for selinux when an alert is triggered.
