Sun 10 Jun 2012 07:06:02 AM UTC, original submission:

if /tmp directory is polyinstantiated, gksudo a X program will have no display.

While sudo work properly

step to reproduce:
1. set up private namespace by pam_namespace.
2. startup X program by gksudo, nothing will be displayed.

$ gksudo -d thunar
No ask_pass set, using default!
xauth: /tmp/libgksu-B8ieI8/.Xauthority
STARTUP_ID: gksudo/thunar/2301-0-earth_TIME0
cmd[0]: /usr/bin/sudo
cmd[1]: -H
cmd[2]: -S
cmd[3]: -p
cmd[5]: -u
cmd[6]: root
cmd[7]: --
cmd[8]: thunar
brute force GNOME_SUDO_PASS ended...
Yeah, we're in...
xauth: /tmp/libgksu-B8ieI8/.Xauthority
xauth_env: /home/ching/.Xauthority
dir: /tmp/libgksu-B8ieI8
