cannot restart/shutdown if logged in another virtual terminal


Hi

It doesn't work when I try restart/shutdown in Gnome of my squeeze if logged in another virtual terminal, for example using CTRL-ALT-F1.

I solved this problem:
Code:
# cat /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.consolekit.policy

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE policyconfig PUBLIC
 "-//freedesktop//DTD PolicyKit Policy Configuration 1.0//EN"
 "http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/PolicyKit/1.0/policyconfig.dtd">

<!--

-->

<policyconfig>

  <action id="org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.stop">
    <description>Stop the system</description>
    <message>System policy prevents stopping the system</message>
    <defaults>
      <allow_inactive>no</allow_inactive>

  </action>

  <action id="org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.stop-multiple-users">
