The usual "can't launch anything" problem is because the hostname changed or
somehow X authentication broke, but that's unrelated to the superuser
authentication referred to by the authentication icon.

Anything in .xsession-errors (or in a terminal if you try to launch an app from
the terminal)?
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-07 23:12:09 EST
I haven't seen other reports of this. Will need more info to reproduce; 
please reopen if you can make it happen reliably, and let us know what 
errors or anything like that you see. Also whether launched apps start up and
just can't connect to X, or if they don't start at all, if you can tell.
