Question Permission denied

I just don't remember if I did anything wrong, but all of a sudden when I click on any application that needed root password; instead of getting the password window = i got an error "inssuficient right".
This is only happened when i used my home dir, it work fine with root.
I've been thinkering with FC3 for couple of days. Would appreciate your help.

try not to click on application icons, buy open desired program via terminal, if it doesn't open, at least you can see errors...
