Description Owen Taylor 2003-02-11 22:38:40 UTC
As a non-root user, start redhat-config-language twice,
typing in the root password the first time. The second
time, the authentication is remembered, so the dialog
isn't displayed, and the startup notification sticks.

Likely cause is that the DESKTOP_STARTUP_ID envvar
isn't being propagated in this case to the child program.
