Package: gnome-logs
Version: 3.30.0-2
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

If I run gnome-logs by gui, it crashes instantly.
So I I wanted to investigate, and running it by terminal:
$ gnome-logs

** (gnome-logs:24155): WARNING **: 01:02:25.445: Error retrieving the sender
timestamps: Cannot assign requested address
Segmentation fault

But If I run it by root and not normal user, it works fine.
Finally, I'm agree that only administrator user can reads most of logs, but I
don't think that this behavior is right, rather I believe that a text field
should come out where to enter the administrator password and use it correctly.
