It didn't work on 9.0 either, unfortunately I no longer have a 9.0 box

This is how it works:

- I launch the tool from a terminal;
- I'm prompted for root password, which I supply;
- immediately after that, the standard GNOME error message ("The 
application "time-admin" (process 5733) has been terminated due to a 
fatal error (Segmentation fault)" beware, I'm translating from italian 
here :) pops up;
- when I close the error message, two new dialog windows pop up: another 
error message (ending with "Aborted" instead of "Segmentation fault") 
and a warning about the root password being incorrect;
- at the same time, the following message is printed in the terminal window:

** ERROR **: file vte.c: line 6958 (vte_terminal_process_incoming): 
assertion failed: (_vte_buffer_length(terminal->pvt->incoming) > 0)

- if I choose to run the tool without password, only the first warning 
pops up, and no message error in the terminal;
- if I purposefully enter the wrong password, only the warning about the 
root password being incorrect pops up, and the tool isn't launched.

Hope this helps :)
