Hem, that means it's something in policykit or consolekit and it's not
related to our bug. I don't exactly know how it works, but basically the
purpose is that the user in front of the computer has the power. When
using su, the new user in front of the computer is root, which
invalidates the previous session.

Anyway, I guess that means this bug is closed. Please open another one
against consolekit for the issue you're seeing.
