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:

~ #> killall gconfd-2
~ #> gconftool-2 --direct \
> --config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory \
> --type bool \
> --set /apps/gksu/save-to-keyring false
