I'm running openSuSE 12.2, a fairly standard install, didn't do anything crazy with it. It pops up a red "Failed to gain Authentication" box in the lower right of the screen every 5-10 minutes or so. It then fades away rapidly. It's really annoying and I have no idea why it's doing that. Anyone else already solve this problem and have a solution to share?

I saw that openSuSE 12.3 came out. I did the upgrade. Have not seen this error ever since.
