Description Christopher Yeleighton 2011-07-26 10:34:34 UTC
== Steps to reproduce ==
  1. { pkcon search name adobe; }

== Actual results ==
An intermittent dialog box appears asking for the root password.
The dialog box disappears before I am able to type anything.
Command failed: The proxy could not be set: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

== Expected result ==
The search function should not ask for the root password.
