    Lucid incorrect adminstrative password

    After upgrading today I need to enter my administrative password for 'Computer Janitor' or 'Adobe Air' installations.

    This window seems to be new? When I enter my sudo password it doesn't seem to work. It says my password is incorrect. When I sudo from shell it works fine.

    I've attached the window.

    Anyone?

    I've attached the screenshot. This one works when I fill my password. It just opens gedit.
