gksudo gjig gives error

I have Debian-testing with LXDE working well and updated. I have installed wajig and liking it very much. But when I try to start gjig with command 'gksudo gjig' I get following error:
(gksudo:3605): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_str_has_prefix: assertion `str != NULL' failed
How can I correct this? Is there any other way to start gjig? Thanks for your help.

How about
sudo gjig
Or if you don't have the sudoers file configured then su to root then launch gjig.

I had the same problem, SSH to my linux server from Windows 7, when I run gksudo the password prompt wouldn't let me type it in, although I could click the buttons.

I had to disable-grab for gksu in gconf-editor. Although this could bring up some security concerns.

Does anybody have a better solution?
