Package: libpam-systemd
Version: 215-11
Followup-For: Bug #732209

Hi Vlad,

Yes, I am still able to reproduce this bug in my GNOME session in my
latest Jessie, indeed. After opening the root terminal window and in
focus, I can use three ways to trigger:

1. In a standar user terminal open a shell and run "gksu gedit".
2. Type Super key and search dconf-Editor and run it.
3. Type Super key and search for Files file manager and run it. 

I do not use MATE so I don't know how that works. My system otherwise is
working fine. I don't have access to unstable or experimental distro, so
I cannot test it. 

My system is a healthy Debian Jessie 8 with systemd-sysv:
