Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

When clicking on the Unlock button in gdmsetup, the PolicyKit authentication box doesn't show what action it is supposed to do. Maybe show "Authentication is required to modify login settings" ?

  * debian/patches/09_gdmsetup.patch:
    - don't list the policykit file in the configure, it's not required but
      breaks the escaping and the strings listed in the authentification dialog
