gksudo is slow!
When running gksudo there is a delay of ~ 3 seconds after pressing enter at the terminal and before the password entry window is shown.
Meanwhile there is a jumping icon shown instead of the mouse cursor.

After the password was entered there is another noticable delay ~1/2 second before the  command is run.

This also happens with test commands such as "echo test" which should take no time to run.

Running the same command with sudo is perceived as instant.
Kdesu immediatly shows the password entry window.

gksu 2.0.2-5

KDE 5.8.5
konsole 16.12.0-1
Arch linux
