    Dunno, but if it turns out to be a persistent problem, ufw is EXTREMELY easy to manage from a terminal.

    The proposed change to the .desktop fixes this in an ubuntu (unity) session, as far as any other session don't know as I don't & won't have any other session installed

    You have to edit this file:

    Code:
    sudo nano /usr/share/applications/gufw.desktop
    Of course you can use different text editor than nano.

    Also the branch which resolves this bug is already merged in gufw trunk so soon it will land in Trusty.
