'Twas brillig, and Olav Vitters at 25/09/12 21:32 did gyre and gimble:
> 680689 (gnome-settings-daemon) power: enforcing lid close
> If you are using systemd >= 183, gnome-settings-daemon is now talking
> to logind for suspend and lid-close handling. Due to the way the
> logind API uses polkit, this can sometimes lead to a polkit
> authentication dialog in response to a suspend request - which is
> problematic when you just closed the lid. The policy which controls
> when this occurs was made a little more forgiving in systemd 188, but
> it can still happen.
> With system 191, a new API was introduced that lets us avoid this
> problem altogether, and bug 680689 has a patch to make use of this,
> but it is too invasive to land for 3.6.0 at this point. If you are
> shipping with systemd >= 191, you should consider using this patch.

Now that we have the latest systemd, I will apply the latest version of
this patch to cauldron.
