Package: partitionmanager
Version: 1.0.0-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Upon starting partitionmanager, it asks for root password, but then the window 
doesn't appear, and you can see in System Activity how several zombie 
"partitionmanager" processes appear. There is one which is not zombie, if you 
kill it, all of them disappear.
It seems like the program starts OK if you execute partitionmanager-bin, and it 
offers the option of not using root privileges, and therefore hard drives do 
not appear listed, etc.

Maybe it's a bug in kdesu or something, not really partitionmanager fault...

I have my own debian-liveCD made with live-helper, and same thing happens, but 
there's no root password there, of course.
If I set one up, same problems occur.s
