Yes. I'm not aware of any machine where this can't be reproduced yet.

I can't reproduce it with the following versions:

gksu: 1.3.7-1
libgksuui1.0-0: 1.0.4-3
libgksu1.2: 1.3.8-1

Can you try it with those versions?

Thanks,

So, I found the problem. Under the fr_CA locale su spits a strange char
in the authentication failure message:

kov@alface:~/src/gksu/gksu/trunk$ env LANG=fr_CA su
Password:
su�: Authentication failure

This <?> is a "special" space in iso8859-15; I am not sure this space
should even exist and it will certainly break gksu. I'm considering this
is a bug in su's french translation, so I'm reassigning.

Thanks,
