Summary0014474: xfce-polkit fails with CRITCAL
DescriptionWhen starting xfce-polkit it fails with the following error:


** (xfce-polkit:15429): CRITICAL **: polkit_agent_listener_register_with_options: assertion 'POLKIT_IS_SUBJECT (subject)' failed

(xfce-polkit:15429): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
Steps To ReproduceInstall Centos7

yum groupinstall "Xfce"
yum install xrdp
add port to firewall
add xfce4-session to .Xclients

Access machine via RDP. Xfce-polkit is in the default startup so you get an error message.

A manual call from an Xterm over xrdp leads to the above error.

Sorry, wrong bugtracker. Xfce is from the EPEL repo and not supplied by CentOS. You want the Fedora EPEL section of bugzilla.redhat.com instead.
