Description of problem:
In all applications that opens the redhat ask for root password promt (all
redhat-config and lots more) you get an error if you change your mind and press
cancel, how you missed this bug, that was a huge annoyance in redhat 8, is
beyond me. Still, this is not really anything but an annoyance, but please fix
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start any redhat-config gui as user, not root
2. Press cancel when promted for root password
3. Voila !
Actual Results: In norwegian I get "ukjent avslutningskode" meaning something
like unhandled expection in english. In english you get The password you typed
is invalid. Please try again.
Expected Results: It should just close, without the error message
The error-on-cancel problem appears fixed in usermode 1.68 in rawhide.
