	I guess that would be yet another bug in PolicyKit. Per the PolicyKit.conf 
man page:


Changes to this configuration file are immediately propagated to running 
processes using the PolicyKit library. If the configuration file is invalid, 
processes using this library will log this fact to the system logger and the 
library will only only return no as the answer to processes using it. 


	Of all the changes I've made, no errors logged so it should be happily 
propagating, ... or fornicating, ... or whatever PolicyKit does to my 
system  ;-)
