Steps to reproduce:

  1. Set /apps/gksu/save-to-keyring to mandatory false
  2. run something through gksu, such as "gksu mousepad"

Expected result:
"Remember password" checkbox is unchecked and disabled

Actual result:
"Remember password" is initially unchecked but it is enabled. When "Remember password" has been checked, the session/keyring radio below it is enabled.

Checking "Remember password" and selecting one of the session/keyring items has no functional effect on the functionality when /apps/gksu/save-to-keyring is set to a mandatory false. For example: when "Remember password" is checked with "Save for this session" selected, subsequent calls to gksu prompt for the password, as expected.

I set the relevant gconf setting to mandatory false like so:
